One in Six Bosses Will Drive By an Employee’s House to Make Sure They’re Really There on Sick Days

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

I don’t know if you’ve heard, but some people LIE about being SICK to get time off from work.

And according to a survey by CareerBuilder, one in three employers say that workers take more sick time around the holidays. 

Of course, that could also be because the holidays are in winter, and more people actually get SICK during the winter.

But if you’re thinking about faking a sick day, be warned:  One in seven bosses have fired an employee for abusing their sick days . . . and more than one in four have checked up on employees.

 Seven in ten employers require a doctor’s note when an employee takes a sick day, and more than half have called an employee’s house to make sure they’re home to pick up.

 And one in six bosses DROVE by the employee’s HOUSE to check on them.
