Your team is getting sick - and it could be your fault

By the second week of January, most workers will have shrugged off the remains of the festive period, denounced the excess of Christmas and be ready to return to work (hopefully) well-rested and rearing to instil some much-needed normality into their schedules.

Yet, despite the extended time away from the workplace, January and February are the most common months for workplace absences due to illness within the coming year. Yet this doesn’t mean that bosses should be expecting too many absences, according to a new report released by Cleanology.

    I've always thought that there should be more protection for workers who need to call in sick. Obviously there are going to be those who are always calling in sick, and who should be dealt with if they're out more than in, but if a worker has a cold they shouldn't be allowed to come into the office. If you work in a customer facing role it's unfair to deal with clients whilst ill as you're then making them sick too. There's too much anxiety about losing jobs for taking time off sick, something needs to be done to prevent this.
