Attendance bonus

Attendance bonus a payment made to employees by their employer as part of their wage to reward satisfactory attendance at work. Although many would argue that such payments should not be necessary because satisfactory attendance is usually a condition of the contract of employment, it can be a useful means of discouraging absenteeism.

Attendance bonuses used to boost attendance rates are a good example. Employers pay their employees a bonus for excellent attendance over a given period. This sounds completely acceptable on the face of it. However, if not carefully designed, attendance bonuses can indirectly discriminate against some employees.

Attendance Bonus for Hourly Employees
Life events can interfere with work attendance. However, we need employees to use as few emergency personal hours as are necessary and to avoid tardies so that we can operate the business in an orderly and efficient manner.

Thus, we have established an attendance bonus system at Your Company to encourage employees to be at work and on time.

The attendance bonus has four components.
Each employee who uses no emergency personal time and has no tardies in a calendar week will have his or her name entered into the monthly attendance drawing. The drawing is held at the monthly all-company staff meeting. For each week the employee had perfect attendance, he/she has an entry in the drawing. Four employees a month, whose names are drawn, will receive fifty dollar checks.
Each employee who uses no emergency personal time and has no tardies in a calendar quarter will receive a gift from Your Company, with an approximate value of @25.00, in appreciation of his or her attendance and commitment.
Every employee who accomplishes the following attendance record in a calendar year is eligible to receive the stated annual bonus after the end of the calendar year.
–If an employee misses up to 16 hours and has no more than one tardy, the employee will receive 100 percent of the bonus: $300
–If an employee misses up to 24 hours and has no more than two tardies, the employee will receive 50 percent of the bonus: $150
–If an employee misses more than 24 hours and/or has more than two tardies, the employee will not receive an attendance bonus.
Employees who do not use their emergency personal hours will be paid for the unused hours at the rate of one hundred and ten percent (110%) of their straight-time pay after the end of the calendar year.
