Cheating and sick days

The fact that there are so many sites to get cheating doctor notes makes me a little ill. Not ill enough to miss work, though, heh.

The whole way our society manages worker illness is dysfunctional and doesn’t take into account all that we’ve learned about productivity, physical and mental health, and human behavior. This is an unethical response to bad management practice, and that’s just going to feed the problem.

I used to work for an employer that had what I thought was an enlightened policy: if you’re sick, don’t work. If you have a major problem, talk to your boss about managing it. Otherwise, you should be productive enough to deal with it.

And as an employee: if you hate your job so much you make up lies to not have to work, you need a new one.
