What if I need time off from my job?

Please work with your supervisor to arrange any time off that may be needed.  This is just good work protocol. Let your supervisor know ahead of time that you will need a specific date off to confirm it is convenient. Do not wait until the day of to request the time off.  Be sure to also have a conversation with your supervisor about if you are sick, need to be late, or have an emergency, how they wish to be communicated with.  For example, some supervisors may ask you to call them, while others may request an e-mail.
