How do you manage a “no show” at work?

I loved this article and had to share…..

What does “no call no show” mean?

“No call no show” is a common phrase used to describe a scenario when someone doesn’t show up for work and doesn’t call. This can put a heavy strain on your business and can lead to mistrust and even to firing that employee. In at-will employment states, you are, generally, within your rights to fire an employee for any reason at any time.


No call no show excuses

Are there really any good excuses for missing work and not calling? According to CareerBuilder’s annual survey of employees and human resources managers, 40% of workers have called in sick in 2017 when they actually weren’t. The top reason for calling in sick while not actually ill is to go to a doctor’s appointment, followed by simply not feeling like going to work. The same survey also found that about one-quarter of employers have said they’ve fired someone for concocting a fake excuse.

The survey was based on responses from 2,257 hiring and HR managers and 3,697 full-time employees. Below are some of the craziest excuses employers reported:

  • A bear was in employee’s yard and they were afraid to come out.
  • Employee’s phone exploded and it hurt their hand.
  • Employee ate a toothpick in his food at a restaurant.
  • Employee broke his arm wrestling a female bodybuilder.
  • Employee called in “fat” because uniform didn’t fit.
  • Dog swallowed employee’s car keys so she was waiting until it came out.
  • Employee left his clothes at the laundry mat.
  • Employee did not have enough gas to get to work.
  • Employee had to reschedule a new manicure because some of their artificial nails fell off.
  • Employee was not sure how the solar eclipse would affect them so it would be safer to stay at home.
