Is a person's scheduled day off counted towards the 3 day occurence policy?

    An Emergency has come up and I plan to miss 4 days of work. I know I got a write up coming for it and I'll take it, but what I want to know is if my scheduled day off is Monday and I take Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday off, will I still need a doctors note to return? Does Monday count since I'm normally off for Mondays anyway?

    monday dont count but your missing more then two days so you need some kind of excuse unless you call and explain your emergency to someone. However i would still get an excuse

    When you call out sick you have to give a excuse?

    Why?

    I plan to call in Tuesday and let someone know I won't be in. I'm not sure but I don't think the other days I need to call in. I think that each counts as a call in after that if i'm not mistaken.

    you call off and usually the second day is free, it counts as one accurance

    See this is why people should read their contract. Let me guess someone told you one time that you need a doc note after 3 days and you took it as fact.

    This ones for free...

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Nope. Man it chaps their ass too. Last time I called in they threatened a warning letter because I hadn’t told them “WHY” the last 4 times I called in.

    That didn’t make it far lol

    As I understand it, you have to botify each day you miss, when you return on Friday, you will be required to provide DR retirn to work.
    It then counts as 1 occurance for those 3 days.

    Some areas don't have "sick days" so I thought maybe he had to give a excuse for different reasons.

    We don’t have sick days but all it says is you must inform them at least an hour prior to start time if you won’t be in.
