Per policy, Sick leave for one or two days can be directly approved by managers but for third day approval, a prescription is required for managers to approve..

If your manager is asking for proofs every single time then they are just micro managing.

Yes they need proof and therefore ask for medical certificates etc.

Yes...I faced similar issue...where I didn't want to share medical history...with male manager. If that is the case, then u can chck if there is a same gender TM that u cn share it with. But medical documnts are necessary to get sick leave approved. If you do not wish to share...u can apply for Annual leave, where u wl not need to furnish any medical documnts

Medical documents can only be asked when you take sick leave more than two days. That’s the policy. He cannot ask anything if it’s one or two day sick leave. Inform sick leave at least 6-8 hours prior your login time.

like

Managers can ask for Medical certificate if SL >2 days.
Not required for 1 or 2 day SL.

like

As per my knowledge, They only need Medications or certificates if u go for more than 2 consecutive SLs, otherwise they wouldn't ask for any proof, but still, this may differ from manager to manager.

like

This should only happen if you take SL more often ( repeated trend). As per policy SL of 2 days or less should not require a medical certificate

Yes they can, it is useful to apply leaves for you from there end.

What is L2 employee, is this different to L2 level?
And yes, the manager can ask for the proof document in certain cases..

Micro managing, tm can only ask if :
Cl:if there is already less staffing, else no need . 2+ you need to give some good reason, or atleast for cl for longer time, inform tm in advance atleast week for 2+ ,
For sl: 2+ they can, else for or 2 day, he/she is pressurizing without any reason.

Do you assign homework?

I don’t, and there are a couple of reasons why. First, the standards I teach never once mention a time frame in which something should be accomplished, so assessing something for “when” it was finished seems like the wrong thing to do. Secondly, I can’t make assumptions about someone’s home life. Some kids lack an environment in which to do homework, while other kids’ parents do it for them. IMO, homework is just NOT a good way to assess abilities.
