Started a new position (internal transfer) in IT alittle over a month ago after 6 months in a previous role - during that time, I've had to take two half days (dr. appts), was gone for a week due to training, had Memorial Day, and took two days of unplanned PTO this week. After calling in today, my manager notified me that we will sit down and talk about the attendance policy next week. I'm not currently in rotation or have any projects assigned to me but know that for appearance sake's - I shouldn't have taken unplanned PTO. I like my job and don't want to come across as unreliable or a problem employee.
How do I let my boss know that I'm a reliable employee who honestly just didn't realize that taking unplanned PTO was a big deal or how do I recover at work?
