not really. I am fair and just in my view. if I pay you to do a job I expect you to show up for that job.Ray Dolby had a great way of using the "sick day / PTO" subject. He called them what they are "mental health days": you could take as many as you needed, just don't abuse it. Since he's passed away now, I doubt that the company is using this style anymore, but maybe they are.
If you ran a company - with your attitude - you'd be organized in a heartbeat.
if you call in sick to go protest and you are not sick then that is an fraudulent claim. you can be written up and or fired.
by calling in sick when you are not you cause way more trouble than what you are worth at that point.
it means that someone else has to come in and work over time. it means that someone else has to do YOUR work.
or it means that the people already on have to do double the work to make sure that what you are doing is getting done as well.
you have become a determent to operational proceedings.
all so you can be not sick.
I worked with guys like you. they call in sick when they weren't sick. I had to cover their shift on my days off etc ...
