How do you guys handle calling out of work for being sick while on a tight audit? I do not feel well but I feel the pressure of working though the pain Bc I’m behind. I don’t want to fail my team.

I can think of 2 ways - if you can think of a plan where the team can take on the work or split it out and still meet the deadline - I’d bring this up now and suggest alternatives. Or have a peer you trust on the team to do you a solid and you’ll remember and return the favor later. The worst is not saying anything and end up really sick - your mgmr is angry because now they assumed you were inefficient working through your illness and your senior pissed bc now they have to clean up / redo the work This has happened to me during busy season ..I felt the onset so I told my senior and he lightened my load for the week - I was less stressed and got my work in, and I was able to recover and was able to focus healthily until filing

If you are sick you are sick. Take the time off to recover. Most audit companies have enough staff to shuffle around if it is an important enough client, or the client can delay the work. Regardless that is for the manager to manage. I wouldn’t ask for time off. I would state I am sick, I am taking time off to recover. An audit has never stopped because an associate was sick. You are at the end of day interchangeable with another. As for letting your team down, most people are human and will understand. Personally I do not want to putting extra pressure on someone that is ill or spend time in a room with someone that is sniffing and coughing away.

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?
