How to Call in Sick at Walmart When You Don’t Have Your Employee ID Number
What’s the Deal with FMLA?
Before we dive into calling in sick, let’s talk about something called FMLA. This special law says that if you qualify, you can take up to 12 weeks off from work each year for important family or medical reasons. But there are some rules.
Who Can Use FMLA?
To use FMLA, you need to work at Walmart for at least 90 days and have a good reason for taking time off. If you meet these rules, you’re eligible.
Calling in Sick Without Your Employee ID Number
Usually, when you’re feeling unwell and can’t go to work, you just call and let your boss or HR know. But what if you can’t find your employee ID number? Don’t worry; we’ve got some tricks for you:
Method 1: Know the Name? Give Them a Call!
If you know the name of your boss or the HR person, you can call them and ask for your ID number. They should be able to help you out.
Method 2: Dial the Main Number
If you’re not sure who to talk to, call the main number for Walmart and ask to speak to HR. Once you’re talking to someone in HR, just explain that you need your ID number for calling in sick.
Method 3: Surf the Company Website
If the first two methods don’t work, don’t panic. Go to Walmart’s website and look for the HR section or something called the “employee self-service portal.” Inside that portal, you should be able to find your employee ID number.
Remember, calling in sick is important when you’re not feeling well, and not having your ID number is just a little bump in the road. Your supervisor or someone in HR will help you out.
