Have you ever had to drag your sick self out of bed to get a doctor’s note for work just to confirm that you’re sick? While a National Post column today says it’s selfish to go to work when sick, do you think people go to work when sick because their selfish, or because they feel pressure by their employer to be there? And pressure doesn’t have to be spoken; it can be felt too.
Well, this doctor’s note has almost 5 million views on Reddit.
Which begs even more questions:
Does your work need senseless doctor’s notes from you? When do you think it’s appropriate for your work to request a doctor’s note? And are doctor’s notes taking away from the health of our health care system?
