Employee Absence Reporting Line (EARL)

The Employee Absence Reporting Line (EARL) is an automated phone service for reporting health-related, full-shift absences from work. This includes absences for:

  • Illness
  • Workplace injury/incident
  • Unplanned & planned health-related absence
  • Pre-planned absences such as a medical procedure or surgery

Using EARL, staff need only make one phone call to report an absence. The system is available 24/7 so calls can be made any time, day or night. All employees of Providence Health Care will be expected to use EARL, including frontline staff, managers, directors and executives.
