Probably, I had 6 months off with my op with no pay, it was a struggle but I had to get well enough before going back otherwise I'd be off again. The system is not good xx

I agree with getting paid for sick days, but in the UK many companies do pay after the you been sick for 3 days. This obviously allows for people taking the day off, because they phone up claiming to be sick, but in a lot of cases if the truth was known can't be bothered with going to work, in particular a Monday, whereby a lot of people have consumed excessive alcohol over the weekend and do not feel like working as they still have the hangover problem.

Other problems occur with very small businesses whereby if a person is off sick, then they have to find a worker to cover, normally through an agency, which can be expensive and could cause a lot of problems for these type of small businesses. A lot of people do abuse the system of sick pay, in particular Government agencies, who get paid for sickness from day one, and these places have one of the highest percentage of workers claiming sick pay. There are certainly cases on either side for sick pay getting paid or not, but there will have to be a lot of guide lines to go along with it.

Consider the rights of the mothers from a human point of view and everything will come OK. and most of all let's go for a world where the differences concerning wellbeing are moderated. So cut something from the too higg mountains to fill the too deep pits.

Paid sick days is a benefit, not an entitlement. Federal government does outline a law under the Federal Leave time to care for family members for those of you speaking about taking care of yoru children. If they are disabled or seriously ill, you can use it. As for yourself look into Short term disability or long term disability insurance at your company and use it or if they offer it, sign up and pay for it, so that when you are seriously sick and need to take off from work, then you will...

As for yourself look into Short term disability or long term disability insurance at your company and use it or if they offer it, sign up and pay for it, so that when you are seriously sick and need to take off from work, then you will still get paid. The American citizen should NOT have to cover the expense of paying for people taking off work because they are sick and wanting to get paid for it and niether should companies. It is proven fact that if a person, gets the correct amount of sleep, eats heallthy foods and a healthy diet, exercize, and balanced life, you will less likey to get sick anyway. So take better care of yourself and you will miss less work and be more productive to climb that corporate ladder.
