dont have loads of one day ailments, nobody who is sick enough to be off work recovers in 24hrs
Well, on the one hand, yes some HR departments react to single days off- I discovered in the last big company I worked for that they used a formula that treated a 1 day absence as "worse" than a 2-day one, which was interesting when people pushed themselves to get back to work as soon as possible then got crapped on.
Faced with a ropey system like that, the end result was that people who wouldn't have dreamed of taking a sicky ended up staying off for longer than they needed to, great success Sometimes you have to play the game by the rules they create, a guilty system recognises no innocents
But on the other, "nobody who is sick enough to be off work recovers in 24 hours" is absolute horseflops.
