**Multi-day illnesses shall lose 1 point each additional day, so long as management is kept informed of your condition and when you will be returning to work. This is your responsibility to communicate. If an absence is 3 days or more, you may be required to bring a doctor’s note upon returning to work. This will be at management’s discretion, and failure to do so may result in losing more points.
***Could be double if extreme
Not Doing your Job (Minor) Examples but not limited too: excessive sitting down, talking with coworkers, or cell phone use; failure to manage problem behaviors in a timely manner; not taking your trash to the dumpster; etc.
Not Doing your Job (Major) Examples: dogs left without water; excessively dirty yard; dog fight occurs due to failure to act; etc.
It is extremely important in this profession that each employee is accountable for their scheduled shifts. When ill or for any other reason necessary to call off, please text or call Kevin at least 2 hours before your scheduled shift. If you do not receive a response within 15 minutes, leave a voicemail for Kevin, and then text shift leader for that day. If calling off for an opening shift, keep calling until you reach someone. Each call-off deducts points from your total.
Unless you have been seriously injured in an accident, this should never happen during your employment at Pawsh Park. This could result in immediate termination for job abandonment. Alert Kevin within 15 minutes if a coworker does not show up for their shift. We are a team, so do not leave your coworkers overloaded!
Being frequently late to work will not be tolerated. The pets in our care rely on us for their every need, and when we are late, it impacts the quality of that care. Your coworkers also depend on you to fulfill your obligations, and being late adds more job duties and stress to their roles. Each tardy clock-in of 10 minutes or more after your shift is scheduled to start will result in 1 point deducted from total points. This also applies to coming back late from lunch breaks. If you are frequently tardy, you will lose points and may receive a write-up or other consequences.
