Work performance and absenteeism

Work performance and absenteeism

Work performance involves an investigation to determine whether the employee meets the productivity and efficiency to perform his work activity, is also cause for disciplinary dismissal:

  • His indiscipline, disobedience or verbal abuse to the employer or colleagues at work.
  • The transgression of contractual good faith or abuse of confidence in the performance.
  • The continued and voluntary decrease in work performance.
  • Occasional drunkenness or drug abuse.
  • Harassment to the employer or colleagues on racial, religious, sexual or disability reasons.
  • Repeated failures and unjustified attendance or punctuality committed by the worker.

Within this last point is absenteeism, the same without justification is any absence of a person of his job, in hours corresponding to a working day within the legal workday.

Under current Labor Reform of 2012, absenteeism is cause for dismissal for objective reasons, when the employee is absent from work 20% of the working days in two consecutive months, or 25% of the working days in four discontinuous months, within a period of one year month.
