Why do I still receive occurrence(s) even when I submit a medical excuse for my absence?

Under our Attendance and Absences policy, any unscheduled absence, including those with a medical excuse, is considered an occurrence. This no-fault system permits an employee to have unscheduled absences and tardiness with no negative consequences until the occurrences exceed the policy guidelines. This policy has been established to foster communication of absences in advance and support the seamless execution of our academic and administrative tasks. If you have a serious health condition that leads to regular or extended absences, you may wish to consider Leave of Absence options under the Family and Medical Leave policy.
