Use personal days / sick time as mental health days. We all need them, you can be honest or say you have an appointment

Wrong, we have unlimited sick days but only three personal days. There is a difference, if you're sick talk to your team and work from home

PwC has unlimited sick days too

Do you tell them in advance? Or just week or? Is it frowned upon to use them if you dont have an appointment? Or do I just say im sick as a personal day?

Thank you:)

^Yes but we're not encouraged to take them

@P3 I've always taken my sick days when I was sick, including a full week off for surgery. Unless you're faking it to get out of work I haven't seen a problem.

I have to have a minor surgery, where I can have surgery Thursday be back working Tuesday. Would have to be remote but could work the following week. Do I just put sick days and I still get paid?
