Certain kinds of sickness, like the flu, can become problematic due to their contagious nature, yet many employees feel they should attend office. Mental health-related issues are not considered good enough reasons to stay at home, as they appear invisible or intangible.
With companies striving for maximum productivity, and the gig economy making jobs fleeting and project-based, most workers don’t want to be left behind and are holding tighter to their jobs.
Many employers show deep distrust and create a toxic, fear-based environment for the workforce by not allowing people to take sick days or not showing support and understanding for those who are suffering from illnesses.
Employees should communicate with the manager as soon as possible, allowing them to plan the day’s work. Being honest is the best policy to avoid any misunderstanding, with lying or exaggerating being the worst mistakes.
A good manager has to be understanding and empathetic, building a bond with the employees through genuine care.
