15. Absence from Duty

15.1 Where an employee is absent without prior notice and approval from the workplace, the employee must notify their supervisor as soon as is practicable. The employee will be required to advise the supervisor of the nature and estimated length of the absence.

15.2 Where an employee’s absence extends past the length of absence advised to the University, the employee will notify the supervisor of any changes.

15.3 Failure by an employee to advise the University of the reason for any absence in excess of 10 sequential working days will be considered to be abandonment of employment, and the employee will thereby be deemed to have terminated their employment.
