Employment is a contract between yourself and an employee. If the person is a "no show" more than three days in a row, the industry practice is that s/he is not employed at your firm. I work in retail and instances like this are very common. Always check references, and consider having "orientation" before putting a new employee on the schedule. Do not hold the job for the person unless circumstances were beyond control such as car failure, jail, or family loss. Even then, the employee should have called. Do not get upset over it, just accept this occurance as a natural part of doing business in today's society.
