Employees who find it necessary to be absent from work for
illness or injury, or any other unscheduled reason, shall notify
the Company prior to the start of each of their shifts. In January
of each year, each Department will post the person to be
notified. The absent employee must contact the designated
person, and in the event that person or their designee is not
available, leave a voice mail or other message. Failure to notify
the Company will be subject to discipline.

During extended absences, employees are required to keep
the Company informed as to their status, including providing
reasonable medical verification.
