Management and Personnel Policies

1. Hours of Operation/Work Schedules

The office is normally open from 7:00 am until 9:00 pm Central time. Certain employees may be

assigned to different work schedules and/or shifts outside of normal office hours. If an employee must

be outside of the office for non-business related reasons during their normal work schedule, they should

inform their manager.

2. Attendance Policy

Regular attendance is essential to the businesss efficient operation and is a necessary condition

of employment. When employees are absent, schedules and customer commitments fall behind, and

other employees must assume added workloads.

Employees are expected to report to work as scheduled and on time. If it is impossible to report

for work as scheduled, employees must call their manager before their starting time. If your manager is

unavailable, a voice message should be left. If the absence is to continue beyond the first day, the

employee must notify their manager on a daily basis unless otherwise arranged. Calling in is the

responsibility of every employee who is absent. Absence for three consecutive work days without

notifying the manager is considered a voluntary termination.

3. Leave of Absence

Employees are eligible to apply for an unpaid leave of absence if they have been a regular

employee of the business for at least one year and scheduled to work 20 hours or more a week. The

employees manager will make a decision on the leave request. The request for leave will be reviewed

based on the reason for the request, previous attendance record, previous leave requests and the

impact the absence will have on the business.


Authorized leaves for illness or disability begin after employees have exhausted accrued sick

leave, vacation and personal holiday time. A personal leave of absence, if granted, begins after vacation

and personal holiday time have been used.

If the request for leave of absence for personal reasons, the employees manager, with the

advice of company, will decide whether the current position will be held open, or if a position will be

made available upon the employees return from leave.

4. Family Medical Leave

All employees who have been employed at least twelve months, and who worked at least 1,250

hours during the twelve months prior to the leave request are eligible for an unpaid family and/or

medical leave of absence under the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 for a period up to twelve

weeks during a calendar year under the following circumstances:

For the birth of a son or daughter of the employee and to care for such newborn son or

daughter, if completed within twelve months of the childs birth; The placement of a son or daughter

with the employee for adoption or foster care if completed within twelve months of the placement; To

care for the spouse, or a son, daughter, or parent of the employee, if spouse, son, daughter, or parent

has a serious health condition; or Where a serious health condition makes the employee unable to

perform the functions of his or her job.

Employees ordinarily must provide 30 days' advance notice when the leave is "foreseeable." The

business may require medical certification to support a request for leave because of a serious health

condition, and may require second or third opinions (at the employer's expense) and a fitness for duty
report to return to work. Taking of leave may be delayed if requirements are not met. For the duration

of FMLA leave, the Company will maintain the employee's health coverage under the group health plan.

Upon return from FMLA leave, most employees will be restored to their original or equivalent positions

with equivalent pay, benefits, and other employment terms. The use of FMLA leave cannot result in the

loss of any employment benefit that accrued prior to the start of an employee's leave.

For complete details employees should contact their manager or Human Resources.
