The right medicine

The Advertiser - Careers - - Front Page -

EM­PLOY­ERS are be­ing urged to change their at­ti­tude to­wards sick staff who sol­dier on through their ill­ness and con­tinue work­ing in the work­place.

Health ex­perts warn sick work­ers are un­able to com­plete their tasks as well as they can when they are not ill and that work­places op­er­ate more ef­fi­ciently when staff take the time to re­cover at home.

Em­ploy­ers are be­ing asked if al­low­ing staff to front up to work is the best move for their busi­ness.
