What’s your thought on taking a sick day versus working from home when you are sick? Sometimes when you are sick, you really just need to sleep all day! But with technology... we’re screwed

I don’t think *we* are screwed... I think people with this mindset are screwed. Boundaries people

If you are sick and need the time to sleep - please sleep. If you have a cough and a runny nose and feel a little under the weather but otherwise ok - please stay home and use your discretion on whether you can work. If you can - great. If not - just work on getting better. You are more valuable healthy and the quality of your work will suffer if you are too sick to work - which is no good for anyone.

Depends on how sick I am. Projectile vomiting is a sick day. Having a cold and not wanting to possibly get other sick usually means I work from home.

You’re not screwed. Take a sick day and that’s it. That’s why you get sick days 🙄

Take your sick day. The work will get done eventually. I had a senior manager who always worked when he was sick, which kinda set the tone for everyone else. But fuck it, take care of yourself first.

I don’t understand. This is not Hitler’s concentration camp it’s a firm. If you’re sick you’re sick just rest. The world won’t stop if you’re not working for a day or two.

I am excited about joining the cannabis industry as a nonprofit medical provider. Charitable giving is for dyslexia here in North east. Would like to meet like minded individuals.

I’m a new associate to a T&E group, partner goes away on vacation and leaves me with a 706 to review and sign. The family is very wealthy. Decedent married for 60 years. Partner says it’s “just a DSUE election, decedent was ill for years, no assets.” Provides no records. Not even an admission the decedent owned a toothbrush. So I looked up the decedent’s home - it’s a joint asset. Partner was “surprised”, and still insists “no other assets”. I found file references to art and antiques.

Misled on Maternity Leave Policy. I found out I only get 4 weeks pay for maternity leave (STD +“sick days”). I will take 12 weeks but wont get paid for 8 weeks. I work for a US, west coast based company in the tech/VC industry. Their website claims to offer “paid parental leave and other progressive benefits for parents”. I didn’t find out until after I was hired their pay was only 8 weeks but since I have been at the company less than 12 months, I don’t qualify for their policy. Is this unfair?
