This is a good question. While there might not be a punishment for not showing up to work, when you get back you will have to make up the work that you missed in addition to the work that is due for the day. If the habit is kept up you may have consequences at work from HR. I would suggest not skipping work unless you are sick. It is best to communicate your needs and a day of flexibility if you have a personal event so your coworkers can plan around it. Remember, your work doesn't only affect you.

I would hope that you are not coming to work, because you have a good reason for not being there, i.e., illness, family emergency, etc. It would not be called "punishment" if you do not show up for work. If it happens too frequently, there could be some type of disciplinary action...it might be a talk with your manager/supervisor the first couple of times. After that it could be a written reprimand that is put in your file. Any disciplinary action taken will depend on the company policy for attendance. Most importantly, if you are not able to be at work on time or repeatedly call in, work that you would normally complete, will need to be handled by someone else. Failing to come to work, impacts others, not just yourself, your coworkers and team morale, management, your customers and it can have a rippling effect depending on your position and what needs to be handled in your absence.

Attendance is one of the most important requirements to having and keeping a job. If you are going to be late for some reason (ex: traffic, car troubles, family emergency), then make sure to call your supervisor to notify them as soon as you realize that you realize that you will be late. Do not make a habit of calling out late or now showing up because this can and will lead to discipline and or job termination. I always follow the advice that my father gave me, that If I am scheduled to work at 8:00 AM and I show up at 8:00 AM, then I'm considered tardy because I should be at the workplace at least 15 mins prior to beginning my shift. The only thing I think about is how would I handle the situation if I own the business and I have employees that are constantly late or absent. Remember you are getting paid to do the job so show up on time and every day and work to the best of your ability.

There are consequences for not coming to work if you did not plan or make provisions. But hopefully your job has flex options that you can take advantage of to cover pre planned time and emergencies.

It depends on the workplace and how late you are. Of course, you will be punished for not showing up on time, especially if it happens frequently and without warning. However, many workplaces are working on becoming more flexible these days, so if you have a legitimate reason to be late, there are options, such as working hours that are more appropriate, that your work might be able to work out with you.

Skipping work is a terrible idea exept you have a very good reason like illness,bereavement or any other emergencies which can be backed up with a medical certificate or very good evidence. Not showing up at work has some serious consequences which can be referred to Misconduct,absenteeism, negligence of duty,in the work place.An erring officer can face disciplinary actions,such as reduction in salary, he or she can be issued query,or a warning letter.All these does not give a good image of the officer,and can even leave a bad vibe with a co-worker who may feel overworked, or overburdened by you being a 'No show at work' This also translates to an individual not having a good work ethic.

It's not a school so no punishments. :)

However when you don't show up for work, there should be a valid reason to do so. Because the work which you had to do yesterday will be in your backlog today as well. You're responsible for your work and sometimes a day off causes delay and more stressful situation. It doesn't mean you cannot take days off, if there's a legitimate reason to take a day off, there will not be any issue. It still shows your commitment towards work and your sense of responsibility towards your work.
