Send an e-mail inquiry to the human resources department asking who has the authority to establish company policies concerning absenteeism.
At this point, I wouldn't go into the specifics of why you want to know, just a general inquiry.
Company policies are legal documents, binding the company under "fair labor practices," and the human resource departments are loathe to discover that supervisors are out creating their own "company" policies. You wouldn't believe the tangles that are created when this happens (supervisors setting policy.)
