absence from work
There are many reasons to be away from work. Whether you’re using your vacation time, staying home because you’re sick or taking time off to attend to personal business, it is important to understand the rules and processes associated with the specific type of absence.
Whatever the reason for your absence from work, the first and most important step is to notify your supervisor. In some cases, you can request time off in advance and receive your supervisor’s approval. In situations where you can’t plan ahead, notify your supervisor as soon as possible.
