请病假那些事

(2018-02-15 13:02:51) 下一个

上周四晚开始下大雪,就一直纠结周五要不要出门去上班。一直在电视上跟踪天气预报,报道的都是车祸又出了几起。很多学校都关门了,老公也被批准在家上班,想想来回近40英里路在这种路况下出车祸可能性极大,一天工资能修啥呀,就决定不去了。
邻桌年轻姑娘因为孩子流感连续请了三天病假了·(工作那么多年都不知道孩子生病还能请病假),那这种恶劣天气情况下能不能请呢?于是就上网查了一下:请病假的7个有说服力的原因里的第四条:恶劣天气。
权益都是需要主动争取来的,争取一下试试,大不了扣休。通知老板不去了然后就去看电视了。
周一去上班发现那天大多数人都没去·老板对没去的人既没算病假也没扣休。周会上也没提。这意思是默认但不鼓励吗?

附:Calling in Sick: 7 Good Reasons, 7 Lame Reasons (salary.com)

The rules below apply whether your company has combined paid time off (PTO), or separate sick, vacation, and personal days.
Valid reason 1: Contagious illness, such as the common cold or flu.

There's no better reason to stay home than legitimate sickness, especially if it's contagious. A sick employee is typically not a productive employee, and can spread germs to other workers.

Do yourself and your co-workers a favor, and stay at home until you feel better.
Lame Reason 1: You're hungover after a night out

Your organization and co-workers shouldn't have to pick up the slack for your good time.

Take a shower, have a strong cup of coffee, and suck it up. Next time, vow to make better decisions on work nights, for everyone's sake.
Valid reason 2: You need a mental health day

If you are feeling burnt out, and need a day off to recharge your batteries, schedule a mental health day in advance so you don't leave co-workers in the lurch.
Lame reason 2: Opening day of Major League Baseball

It can be hard justify missing an important personal event. Whether that be a sporting event, your fourth grader's band concert, or something else, it's hard not to let your work schedule interfere with your personal calendar.

If the event is that important, you should know well ahead of time when it's occurring. Instead of leaving co-workers hanging, schedule a day off in advance.
Valid reason 3: Family issues, such as sick child

Most workplaces are tolerant of a certain number of family-related absences per year. Sick kids, lack of childcare, or a spouse with a sudden medical condition who needs support or help are all valid reasons to miss work.
Lame reason 3: Beach issues, such as you would rather be on one

And so would everyone else in the working world. But, unless you are a supermodel who has a shoot scheduled for Sports Illustrated's upcoming swimsuit issue, your job is not to frolic in the sand. Instead of heeding the call of the ocean (or golf links, or tennis court), resolve to get to work early and be extra productive so you can cut out on time -- or maybe even a little early -- to enjoy a couple hours in the surf.
Valid reason 4: Severe weather

If the weather is severe enough to close roads, schools, and businesses, it's okay to call in sick.

Most employers are concerned about the health and safety of their employees, and do not expect them to risk their lives to get to the office.
Lame reason 4: Mildly annoying weather

Smaller weather-related issues, like the unplowed driveway you haven't gotten around to dealing with yet, or rainy-day malaise that's more conducive to PJs than a power suit, are not good reasons for calling in sick!

Call the plow guy, attire yourself in something extra cheerful, and get yourself to work!
Valid reason 5: Loss of a family member or loved one

This has long been one of the most acceptable reasons for calling in sick. It goes without saying that you should never use this excuse if it isn't true.

Lying about a death in the family is a particularly intolerable lie. Such lies cause coworkers and peers to forever question and wonder about your character and ethics.
Lame reason 5: You wish you could lose your boss

According to a poll done by the Conference Board research group, 49 percent of workers don't like their managers, so you are in good company. Instead of focusing on your manager's behavior, focus on your own.

Show up and do the best job you can. You'll likely move up the ranks, and maybe he'll be working for you someday.
Valid reason 6: Your toilet has exploded

Or your heating system is on the blink, or your well is dry.

Household emergencies happen, and it's okay to miss work to take care of them, as long as you miss only the amount of time that's needed to set things right.
Lame reason 6: Your workload has exploded

Staying at home with your head under the covers won't make your work go away, and will only postpone your problems. Instead of letting your company and co-workers down, show up to work with your game face on, and commit to getting as much done as possible.

Ask for help from co-workers, stay late, or do whatever necessary to catch up. Once caught up, sit down and design a time management plan that ensures future work will get done on time.
Valid reason 7: You have a job interview

It's okay to miss work for an opportunity that could have a positive impact on your career and future. If you are unable to schedule this in advance, be sure to keep your excuse simple -- no long stories or creative tales.
Lame reason 7: Your job is boring

Instead of wallowing at home, take positive steps to change the direction of your life.

Volunteer for extra tasks at work, ask your boss for more responsibility, or increase your knowledge and skill set by taking classes.
Consider your reasons carefully

Calling in sick may not always be an easy choice—but sometimes it's the right choice.

Before picking up the phone consider your reasons to call off work carefully. Determine the positive or negative impact of staying home on you, your co-workers, and your organization.
