How many times do you have to be late/absent for them to suspend you?

I called off last night and I had been late enough times to get two warnings prior to that. Am I going to be suspended now?

 I know a lady that used to work Accounting and was supposed to be at work at 7am. Every single day she came in like 7:40am. And when she started doing another job basically sitting on her A**. She was scheduled at like 9am and still to this day comes in about 10 am or 10:30 am. Some people have a different set of rules. This lady has worked with Kroger 30 plus years.

Depends on how much they like you.  Sad but true.

Depends on which state you are in and what your contract says.

In the Michigan Employee Handbook, Tardies and call ins are counted separately. 

It takes 4 tardies in 90 days to get put on 90 day probation.  2 more tardies in the 90 days leads to 3 day suspension.  When you come back, it takes 2 more tardies in 90 days to get fired.

It takes 4 call ins in 90 days to get put on 90 day probation.  2 more call ins in the 90 days leads to 3 day suspension.  When you come back, it takes 2 more call ins in 90 days to get fired.

I have never been written up but this is how it has been explained to me.

 Correct. Or, also, how much they will tolerate the tardiness because they don't want the hassle of replacing a fairly good worker (other than the fact that an employee is late, the constant-tardier may be a productive employee when they are here and on the clock).  

Case in point: there is a department lead at my Kroger who is almost always tardy........usually 15 minutes and sometimes half an hour, as compared to what her schedule says she is SUPPOSED to be here (The schedule is written by her, though).    This has been going on for literally years. 15 minutes, half an hour, sometimes 45 minutes.  Nothing is said. Management don't seem to know, or else they just don't care.

Also I remember a Manager was late everyday. He told everyone he was going to write them up if they keep being late. But he was still late every day. So they set him up big time.

They got a customer to come in and ask for a manager. The customer came by every day asking for the manager. Manager was never there this customer had to be at their work. 

So the customer called the corporate office to complain. It took awhile and it also took a few employee's to act like they were mad at each other. It was all a game and a set up to get the manager out.  The Manager would make comments like "call the DM on me I got him in my back pocket."

One day the district manager came by early unexpected and he waited on the store Manager in his office. The next week the Manager was transferred.

 Should probably worry about yourself. people who sell there souls like that for those years can do whatever they want.
