It is not recommended that you spend that much time outside of the United States as a green card holder. While there is no law that specifically states this, the general rule is that staying outside of the U.S. longer than 6 months is a presumption of abandonment of residency. There are ways to show that you had no intention to abandon residency though even with a lengthy stay outside the U.S. and you can even be naturalized outside the U.S. in some instances. This is a complex area of law and so before you do anything I recommend you contact an experienced immigration attorney to discuss all of your options.

i have worked with a lot of people who would have meant that as a joke and not in a threatening way at all.
to some employers making mistakes in proper use of the time system is a big issue and corrections seem to cause them a lot of extra work. i personally don't see it as a big issue but.............
i am not your employer and i don't know if you have a problem clocking in and out properly, tardiness or absenteeism or what your job performance is like.
so, ask your employer what was meant by the comment don't let another day go by without resolving the issue, you will have enough to worry about soon enough.

ou can stay out of the US for up to 6 months with no consequence, as long as the person has a vaild green card and passport. Over 6 months contact with the US consulate is needed and the green card holder can stay out of the country for up to a year. Over a year the green card holder will forfeit their green card and not be allowed to re-enter the country.
The US permanent resident CAN stay out of the country for more than a year if they apply for and are granted a re-entry permit by USCIS prior to leaving the country. However, for a PR to become a citizen, he/she must have 5 years of continuous residency and staying abroad for more than a year will typically break it regardless of whether a re-entry permit is issued/used.
