I Couldn’t Make It To Work, My Canoe Floated Away

Filed under: General HR Buzz2:18 pm

 

Employee absenteeism seems to be a growing problem. According to an annual survey by Careerbuilder.com 1/3 of employees admit to calling in sick even they though weren’t. Increasing, many employees view sick leave as an entitlement or another form of vacation rather than time to be used when hit with the flu or accumulated and used should they be unlucky enough to have a long term illness.

We’ve probably all heard plenty of unbelievable excuses. Some of the crazier ones, complied by Careerbuilder were found at www.cnn.com/2008/LIVING/workflie/01/21/out.sick. They include:

· An employee’s dog wasn’t feeling well , so the employee tasted the food and got sick.

· At her sister’s wedding, an employee chipped her tooth on a Mint Julep, bent over to spit it out, hit her head on a keg, and was knocked unconscious.

· Someone put LSD in my salad.

· Stuck on an island- canoe floated away.

· An employee was upset because his favorite American idol contestant was voted off.

· A groundhog bit the employee’s car tire, causing it to go flat.
