Time Off to Vote

Dunwoody encourages employees to fulfill their civic responsibilities by participating in elections. Generally, employees are expected to find time to vote either before or after their regular work schedule. If employees are unable to vote in an election during their nonworking hours, they may request and receive paid leave for such time as is necessary to vote. Employees should request paid time off to vote in writing from their supervisor at least two working days prior Election Day. Advance notice is required so that the necessary time off can be scheduled at the beginning or end of the work shift, whichever provides the least disruption to the normal work schedule. The supervisor will notify the employee at what time he or she will be allowed to take his or her time off.
