I'm not sure if this is actually business related, but my girlfriend works at a retirement home - and her workplace randomly decided to enforce new rules, which basically say that when someone is sick and has a doctor's note, that isn't an excuse anymore and it counts as an unexcused off day, and 3 of those within 3 months and you can get fired.
Can they just do that?
>for some reason
Yeah I can't imagine why you would want a break from dealing with wiping the asses of grumpy ungrateful old wrinklebags who aren't even related to you. Just like any field that tries to meme people in with "rewarding" or "feel good and help others" it's sure to be 90% shit, 10% decent and a once in a blue moon hallmark moment
Why is it that nobody else cares about the fact that this retirement home, with a vested interest in keeping the elderly with compromised immune systems healthy and safe, is actively encouraging people to come in sick? Demanding people to come in unless their illness is bad enough to get a doctor's note about. I've had the flu and not visited the doctors before. I've had sicknesses where I was vomiting and didn't see a doctor for it.
Those are the kinds of germs they want their elderly CLIENTS (easily paying thousands per month for the "service") exposed to?
