NYIT expects all employees to be diligent in their attendance and promptness. Recognizing, however, that absences from work may occur because of illness, injury, or other personal reasons (a death in the family, jury duty, or personal business), NYIT has established policies to cover these instances and compensate its employees for certain time off for legitimate medical and personal reasons. If you are unable to work because of illness, you must notify your supervisor prior to your regular start time on each day of your absence, unless you are granted an authorized leave, in which case different notification procedures apply. Failure to promptly notify NYIT will result in an unexcused absence. Excessive absenteeism has a negative impact on the success of the College. Therefore, excessive absences may result in disciplinary action up to and including suspension or termination of employment.
