Due to some recent incidents we would like all employees to review the following rules:
- Punch out for Lunch: If you leave the premises at lunch, which includes walking to pick up something to eat, or exiting through the company gate, you must punch out when you leave and punch back in when you return. This is required for insurance purposes. Late returns from lunch are docked in 15-minute increments: 1 to 15 minutes late, lose 15 minutes pay; 16 to 30 minutes late, lose 30 minutes pay.
- Breaks: As stated in the union contract, employees get two breaks. For employees working a regular 8-hour shift the breaks are 8:00-8:10 a.m. and 10:00-10:10 a.m. For employees who work more than 8 hours, the breaks are 10:00-10:10 and 2:00-2:10.
- Leave after end of Shift: Employees should be out of the building and leave the parking lot within 15 minutes of the end of the shift. Unless authorized to work overtime, employees should not remain in the building. An employee who must stay later (waiting for a ride, etc.) shall notify his/her supervisor or the Plant Manager.
- 5-Minute Wash Period: The 5-minute wash-up period means the last 5 minutes of the shift.
