This is such a hard situation. Of course you don’t want sick staff at work spreading their germs, but in some cases, as Benedict commented, why take time off and then come back to a workload that has piled up?
Within my work place one staff member had the flu which has now turn into five people being affected, which is just under 50% of our staff. The first staff member had time off but it seems it wasn’t enough. Now we have an epidemic which of course is not helping the bottom line!
It would be great to know how to resolve this situation. Hopefully someone can come up with a solution which everyone can benefit from.
