Sometimes, employees are late. Sometimes YOU'RE late. It's a part office life--according to a recent CareerBuilder survey of HR managers and employees conducted by The Harris Poll, 1 in 4 works are late at least once a month, and for 10 percent, it's a weekly occurrence.

The common reasons are no surprise: 51 percent of late employees have said traffic was a cause; 31 percent have overslept; and 28 percent have blamed bad weather. Also no surprise, employees get more punctual with age. Among workers aged 18 to 34, 38 percent have been late at least once a month compared to just 14 percent of their 45-and-older peers.
