Staff are also expected to be present at their work area throughout the day, and are not to visit other Departments unless they are there on business.
If you are unable to attend work because of exceptional circumstances, then you are to:
1: Personally make contact with your Team Manager or Manager first thing in the morning, and explain your absence and likely day of return
2: If you are away more than one day, then you need to make contact with your Team
Manager or Manager and provide them with a progress report on your situation
3: On your return to work, report to your Team Manager or Manager, and fill in the Leave Form
If you need to leave your work area during the working day, you must ensure that you are authorized to be absent and, if necessary, have someone to take your place
