Do you use all of your sick time? Does your sick time roll over? I looked at my absence balances, and I’ve hardly used any sick time. (Honestly because it’s usually more work to take a sick day.)

I’m saving my sick days for an early retirement

I hardly ever use it. It rolls over.

No, I only use it in the rare occasions that I'm sick. They roll over. We're also able to convert sick days to personal days if needed.

Our sick time rolls over. Hopefully not using it will pay off in the end aka retirement! And yes I agree taking sick days just creates more work for me!

We get the option to have 5 days rollover of our 10 or get 3 paid out if we have 3 left. I never use my sick days so I usually go for the payout to get some extra money at the end of the contract year

taking off is more work than it's worth. I'm saving them for when I decide to get pregnant.

I am proposing to leadership that our open requisitions have fully vaccinated requirements for all roles, so that we are hiring vaccinated people into the firm. Is this fair or would it affect talent acquisition negatively?

My full time job (not SMU) is literally making me sick-spent time at the ER. One associate quit and another is out of full paid parental leave (must be nice, I’m not paid for doing double the work)…so I’m now expected to do the work of 3 associates. My supervisor isn’t exactly understanding, and I don’t know what to do. I’ve been searching for jobs, but it’s difficult since my background is diverse and not focused on one area of law. If I quit, how hard is it to find a new job?

I am 16 days post from when my covid symptoms started and the nausea during a few of the days was intense but managed by zofran. Well now for the most part my symptoms seems to have gone away (still can’t smell/taste and easily fatigued), but every time I fall asleep and wake up, I feel hot and kinda nauseous/sick. I’ve tried eating bigger meals, a snack before bed, have glucose tablets and nothing prevents it. Anyone else experience this? It’s always from 12am-9am (Not pregnant)

Really struggling to get enough protein when striving for a relatively high-protein diet. Everyone relies so heavily on protein shakes and bars but when I consume too much at once I feel bloated and nauseous. Like I can’t get through half a protein shake before feeling ill, or half a protein bar. Has anyone else struggled in the same way? Are there certain products you found that were better than others in terms of digestibility… or do I just need to eat a bunch of chicken every day? 😂

I just need to vent. I am so sick of dealing with one of my coworkers. He has been a thorn in my side since I started working at my new job. He thinks he is the boss, despite the CEO telling him he's not the boss. He wastes 90% of his time micro-managing me instead of doing his own job. He intentionally alters my work after it was finalized, without telling anyone. He lies to everybody and nobody here likes him. The CEO won't get rid of him, nobody knows why. I love my job, but can't stand him.
