I wud never call off work within my first 60 days of employment without a good excuse, meaning a doctors excuse, unless like Colleen said, if u have a fever u shudnt go in, otherwise go to work cuz u wanna know the truth, I know a lot of people who wud give anything to have a job cuz of the economy and everyone of them wud go to work sick. Sorry for bn so straighforward, don't take it the wrong way please, thx and hope u feel better soon
It is best to come to work sick or not at least until your probationary period is over. During that time a new employee can be released easily if they are seen as "casual". One must prove that themselves to be an asset. Many people never call in sick and are retained through layoffs because of it. I do appreciate the approach of nihonjin who wear gloves and masks to prevent spreading their illnesses to others, though. :)
You call in sick when you are sick, there is a chance you do not have any sick time, and you may not get paid for calling in. They can not by law fire you for calling in sick, they may ask for prove if this is a reacquiring issue.
Well if you are so sick that you just feel like daying then you can call in sick, it's not really your fault. But if you know that you are going to make it trough the day and stuff like that, then you call in less as possible.
It depends on how bad the cold is. If you have a fever and can barely breathe, then that's adequate reason, but a little cold is no reason to skip out on work. I've gone to work with pneumonia.
I have gone to work with malaria, but when my fever reach 104, I had work take me to the hospital and grip at me for coming to work instead of going to the hospital.
yeah okay well if i just startded wed and i get a cold wouldn't it look bad to call in sick today?
Yes, it may look bad...only if you could have went to work, but chose not to.
When you are too sick to go in?
few months lol
