Ending employment is not always a well-defined process. When an employee does not report to work as scheduled and has no intention of returning, but fails to provide the employer notice or inform of their intention to quit, it is considered job abandonment. However, employers must have written policies that state how many no-call, no-show days an employee is allotted before a determination of job abandonment will be made. This is important for handling situations in which the employee may be unable to come in/call or otherwise communicate that they do not wish to quit, but will be unable to be in the office.
