Sick sheet saga

Fiji Sun - - Contents -

Narayan Naidu, Suva In light of the on­go­ing abuse in is­su­ing bo­gus sick sheets by some med­i­cal prac­tion­ers, it is vi­tal for the Min­istry of Labour to ap­ply strin­gent mea­sures to amend the labour laws. My sug­ges­tion would be to lea­galise paid sick leave for one day only per month ir­re­spec­tive of the num­ber of days stated in the sick sheet. Of course, neg­a­tive im­pact from some em­ploy­ees and trade unions are ex­pected.If im­ple­mented, this method would greatly re­duce un­wanted ab­sen­teeism at work­place and as­sist em­ploy­ers to main­tain the pro­duc­tiv­ity lev­els at par.
