No call, no show

A no call, no show is an absence from the workforce without notifying the employer.[1] This form of absence is generally deemed inconsiderate and unprofessional. When workers miss work, especially in jobs where one's workload would require to be substituted for the day (teachers, cashiers, servers, etc.), it is generally expected that they call in advance to inform of his or her absence so that their workload can be completed by the present workers. Many businesses have forms of punishments as a result of no call, no shows such as counseling statements, suspension, and possibly termination of employment.[2]


  • Sometimes, employees who do not show up to work without reporting are quitting the job and by doing so abandon their position and discontinue all further communications with the employer.
  • There are times, however, when a no call, no show is not preventable, such as when an employee is suffering a medical emergency and is unable to communicate with the employer. Satisfactory documentation of the unexpected nature of the situation is expected. Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA) allows employees to take unpaid leave during specifics situations such as medical issues, but still must comply with attendance policy.[3]
  • No call, no show is a major issue in the temporary employment industry. Agencies often send an additional 10% to 20% more employees to compensate for its occurrence.[4]
