Yes, I told my manager because I was taking frequent breaks throughout the day to rest. If you don’t want them to know it’s covid for some reason, then just tell them you are sick and need to take time to get better. If you are still at KPMG, there is a covid code to use for this.

Weve had team members just take longer sick leave / charge to the covid code. Our project leaders first priority was for them to take sick leave and get better rather than work through it! Hope your managers will do the same for you!

I would let them know you are awaiting a test. Pending the result, you will need to charge to COVID code so that you can rest due to severe symptoms.

If you phrase it this way you are already establishing your boundaries and telljng them What you need. They also can’t ask weird questions about if you can work thru it or if you need time off. I hope you feel better OP!

Can you just say that you have to take medical leave for X days (or a range) and then sort out with HR whatever needs to be done on the back end? I'm very opposed to revealing personal details, but with vivir being so common, i don't think it is a big deal. It doesn't have the same stigma as a year ago.

*Covid

We had a team member who had to take a break for a few months due to COVID. Definitely tell your manager! Don’t push yourself, or else it will take longer to recover and the quality of your work will suffer. Better to let them know before hand than risk damaging your personal brand

What wbs code can we use for few months for covid? Short term disability or is there a cpvid time lost code?

Since covid started I’ve been working with a team of doctors and scientists to develop a self contained rapid antigen test. Trials run by the cdc and NY health and hospitals have shown it’s as reliable as a pcr test but results come back in 15 min. We are looking to get the test into the market by the holidays but are in need of capital. Does anyone here have access to family offices or something similar?

I graduated last year and was promised a full time salary of 60k (marketing). However, my start date was exactly when Covid hit hard and everyone froze their hiring process and took salary cuts, so my company cut my TC in half. I was loyal to my company and it didn’t hit hard until now. They’re starting to hire many more people in a diff department which makes me think they have the budget now. How should I start and navigate this conversation? Thanks in advance 🙏🏼 (Cross-posted)
