You perfect your cough and sniffle before you call in “sick,” but that little trick doesn’t work on all employers. Some people have found themselves being trailed by private investigators on their “sick” days. According to a CNN report, a man in New York found out that his employer placed a GPS device on his family car. The movements of his wife children had been tracked for a month. And you thought your boss was a problem!
The saying goes that time is money and if you’re at home playing sick or saying your grandmother has died (for the fifth time), that might be impacting your boss’ bottom line. Do you think it’s okay for employers to make sure their “sick” employees are really sick?
What kind of lies have you told to get a day off from work?
