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]
