Description: Absence Reporting


Employees shall call (609) 646-5040 and provide their name, department, reason for absence and expected date of return. Human Resources will promptly notify the appropriate supervisor and prepare the Leave Request Form which will be forwarded to the employee for processing.

Upon return from unscheduled absence, employees are expected to immediately sign and return the Leave Request Form to Human Resources.

Faculty are expected to inform their department chairperson or the Faculty Support Office of absence from the classroom and to arrange for coverage of their classes in advance of the absence.

In the event of an unanticipated or unscheduled absence of an emergency nature, the faculty member should first try to reach the chairperson or Faculty Support Office so that coverage or class cancellation procedures may be instituted. Otherwise, a call is to be placed to the Absence Reporting System (609- 646-5040) and Human Resources will arrange for a notice of cancellation to be placed on the classroom door.

The Faculty Support Office maintains a record of unscheduled faculty absences for timely submission to the Human Resources Office.
