If you omit 以上 then it has the meaning of only being late 5 times without taking into account the possibility of being late more than 5 times.

能说明「以下」的意义是指比某数小,但也包括某数在内的数。能说明「以上」的意义是指比某数大,但也包含某数在内的数。即「以下」为小于等于某数;「以上」为大于等于某数。 e.g. 五次以上:five times or even more. If you like my answer, please click the like button on our Facebook Fanpage. https://www.facebook.com/cceg2017/ Thank you :)

一个月內若有五次以上的迟到.... is more of a formal command. 一个月里如果有五次以上的迟到 is more colloquial. You cannot leave out 以上 since 5 is the borderline case.
