Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about subordinate supervisors who are too strict or loose about tardy policy:
I have a situation in regard to how supervisors handle adherence to our ‘tardy’ policy. I am division manager in a local government agency. Our office policy for being late is that an employee is to tell their supervisor when/if they are late and make arrangements to make it up. Making it up in practice can be taking vacation time, starting or ending work early/late or shortening lunch hour if the employee is not on a 30-minute lunch schedule.
