    Nobody outside of your hub can really answer that question accurately.

    That being said, you probably won't be allowed to use any option days as "sick days." You'll probably get a file write-up but nothing formal like a warning letter.

    They will harass you on the phone when you call but thats it. Nothing will happen unless you habitually miss days

    Sounds to me like just another case of a poor work ethic. I could be wrong.

    Our pt timers here would have to steal the Crown Jewels to be sent to a hearing. We've got some with 14-27 infractions in nine months and never been to a hearing.

    They can't keep pt time help so they quite often get amnesia when it comes to writing them up.

    PT is such a revolving door that any threat of discipline for being late will just result in the employee calling in sick if they are going to be late.

    One guy was scheduled for a hearing (yrs ago) for attendance and he called off the day of the hearing.

    Now that's funny stuff.

    You can't make it into work but you can spend ten minutes of your life signing up to the site then another 10 minutes typing up your sob story just to get advice from a group of internet strangers. My advice, do yourself a favor and call in today and everyday. There are far better jobs you could be doing than this crap!

    There's a new law in Portland that makes it virtually impossible for part timers to be disciplined for absenteeism. Management doesn't even try anymore.

    I think it means the same as "calling in". Calling in sick.

    PT Sup here, they will harass you on the phone to get your ass to work. However, it is likely you will just be written up if that. Now, when it becomes a habitual problem I don't care why they miss, they get written up.
