This is some sick advice.
Illness sometimes gets the best of us all. Drake was forced to cancel a March concert after a bad sushi roll gave him food poisoning — a move that was greeted with a storm of middle fingers and thrown sodas from an audience that had been waiting over 75 minutes, according to Hollywood life. Sickness also forced Amy Schumer to cancel several recent shows in Canada, angering some fans.
Most of us, of course, emerge from a sick day without a slew of venom spat at us on Twitter, but with other worries. Almost a quarter of US adults have lost a job, or been threatened with job loss, for taking too much sick leave. And the pressure is clearly on: 26 percent of US workers have gone to work while they were sick, according to a survey by the National Science Foundation.
If you’re thinking about taking a sick day, first figure out whether you should call out. Bottom line: If you’re too sick to come in, stay home. Period. While it may seem like powering through a work day while sick is necessary, it could hurt your career in the long run. “When we just push through, we often end up needing more time off, because we end up getting more sick than if we had just taken a day off to rest and recover,” says Katie Bennett, career coach and co-founder of Ama la Vida coaching.
Next, ask yourself whether you’re well enough to be an asset to your team, said Bennett. If not, stay home. “And even if you’re nearly over a cold, but coughing and sneezing and giving the appearance that you’re ill to others, it might be best not to go in, just so people don’t go ‘Should you even be here?’” said Bruce Cameron, counselor and executive career coach from Dallas.
Ready to call in sick? Here’s how to do it.
1. Call early
If you can, call the day before, says Tim Toterhi, founder and executive coach of Plotline Leadership. If you wake up sick, call as soon as you can – the sooner your boss knows you’re not coming, the more time they have to inform your colleagues and find coverage for your duties. Your boss may have a form of communication they prefer. If you’re not sure, “call and leave a message, and then follow up with an email.”
2. Be honest
Your explanation should be detailed and, above all, truthful. According to a Careerbuilder.com study, 33 percent of employers have checked alternate sources to see if an employee was telling the truth after calling in sick. With afflictions like the flu or a virus, “protect yourself by getting documentation” from a doctor, advised Laura McLeod, founder and CEO of From the Inside Out Project.
With less serious conditions, a clear, objective explanation will suffice–and finish with an apology. “Give a good solid description,” said Cameron. Such as, “I have a low-grade fever, and I don’t want to bring that into the office today.” Follow it with something like “I’m so sorry I couldn’t be there. I anticipate I’ll be back tomorrow.”
3. Arrange for your work to get done
Ask someone else to cover your work, says Bennett. “Reschedule your important meetings…Organize everything you can so all your boss really needs to know is that you’re not going to be at the office.” If you’re too contagious to go in, but you feel okay, consider offering to work remotely.
If you can't do a password reset due to recovery options that were never that if google can not help me after I call them, I am just switching email providers.
Sick Recovery provides a long term residential program of up to 180 days for individuals who are trying to stop using or have recently stopped drugs/alcohol and are ready to participate in a structured living community.
Sick Recovery’s program is uniquely designed to help addicts recover for the last time. The residential program is set in a structured, sober environment, with an emphasis on a balanced mental, physical and spiritual; life in recovery. Traditional addiction recovery work is combined with a strict daily schedule that focuses on life skills, physical exercise, nutrition, community service, fellowship meetings and faith building. All residents of the program are expected to be active participants in their own recovery.
Residents also have the opportunity access to community resources such as self-help groups, faith building and gym access.
Sick Recovery’s philosophy is that part of a successful recovery is to have the ability to earn a living after graduating from the program. Presently, there are opportunities for individuals who have reached the transitional stage (4 months) to further their education and learn a trade skill.
Sick Recovery offers:
Hands-on education in heavy equipment operation through MX track building and prepping.
A full digital graphic design and printing set-up to teach design, printing, vehicle wrapping, and application of motocross graphics.
Opportunities in social media marketing and promotion through Sick Recovery’s recovering addict run media.
As we grow, more opportunities will come to those who get to the transitional stage (4 months) and begin to learn a trade to further their education and career to prepare for living on their own again.
Helping addicts enjoy their recovery is the distinctive difference between Sick Recovery’s program and the typical mainstream program. Sick Recovery Racing provides the opportunity for riders in recovery to experience races under the supervision of a recovery community and coach. Not a rider? That’s OK. Sick Recovery Racing allows non-riders to experience new places, practice team building, and learn new skills, together as a race team without leaving the therapeutic safe community that the program provides.

It’s not too hard to deal with the odd sick day here or there. It’s something HR is used to dealing with – and you have tools like the Bradford Factor to help ensure absence patterns don’t get out of hand.
But what happens when an employee falls ill for longer than just a few days? Is it right to contact them, or should you let them recover in peace? Today’s article aims to find out.
We asked the following question on social media: Should you call an employee who’s off work sick?
But an overwhelming majority of 50% said it depends on the circumstances. So what are those circumstances? When is it OK to dial the number of a person who’s been coughing their guts up for days, or worse?
“Trust your employees and allow them time off when they need it” is the advice of EZChildTrack president Jeffrey Thomas.
According to Thomas, trust plays a vital role in getting the most out of your team. He also advises against contacting employees who have called in sick – unless it is something truly important and work-related.
“I would highly advise against contacting a sick employee” he says. “The only time I’ve done so is when we needed information that was time-sensitive.”
I agree with Jeffrey Thomas that trust is really important. But I’m not quite convinced that you should just leave employees to get on with their illness unless you really, really need them.
You see, while your intentions might be good, you have to remember that in most circumstances, employees would rather be at work than be sick. Besides, as an employer, you have a duty of care.
According to Mandy Fitzmaurice, writing for HR news, “you are most definitely allowed to contact a sick employee when they are signed off, in fact you have a ‘duty of care’ to keep in touch and see how they are doing.”
For perfumer Huib Maat, of Pairfum London, receiving a call from his boss while off was exactly what he needed to relieve his fears.
“I had fallen while water skiing, which caused ear damage” he explains “and I could not fly back until the problem was cleared. This was a time when remote working was not feasible, so there was very little I could do for the company. But my boss did indeed call me to ‘enquire about my health’ – and I actually found the call very positive.”
Maat says the phone call was helpful both for him, and for his employer. He says that while employers should be interested in the welfare of their employees, he also believes employees should care for their employer. And this phone call was a chance for him to remove any question marks over his absence, while making sure people were getting on OK without him.
Of course, beyond simply ‘checking in’ with an employee, there’s the issue of outstanding workloads. How far should you go in calling sick employees about work-related matters? Employment lawyer Helen Dallimore, writing for FootAnstey, says there are no hard and fast rules.
“There are many situations where employers need to communicate with employees during sickness absence” writes Dallimore. “Employers need to use tact and common sense if someone is off sick, and exercise caution before contacting an individual.”
Here are a few points Dallimore recommends employers consider before contacting an employee who is off work sick:
In a nutshell, use your judgement. If an employee is off work with a cold, then calling to ask where to find a certain file might not be too much of a task. But if an employee has a serious illness, and you’re calling to remind them how X or Y is going wrong because they’re away? You’re probably not helping them recover. And you might be making the problem much worse.
Grant Van der Harst is the Managing Director of Yorkshire-based road marking company Anglo Liners. And while he thinks that a little work-related contact is OK – for example, communicating the handover of projects for the time the employees will be absent – he also says that some situations should be handled with a lot more care.
“If an employee is faced with a more sensitive illness, such as long-term mental health issues” explains Van der Harst, “it is usually best to avoid contacting them. The most important thing to do is assess their background, in order to make an informed decision.”
Van der Harst adds that you should continue to include employees, so they don’t feel isolated – but not to the point where they feel pressured into returning to work too soon. He also suggests referring to your company handbook, as your workplace may have specific rules or regulations in place regarding sickness in the workplace.
The trouble with ‘using your judgement’ is that it’s always hard to know how each employee might respond to a phone call during sickness downtime. So let’s gather a few thoughts on this. Imagine you were off work sick. How would you respond if your employer called to…
By putting yourself in your employees’ shoes, you might find that you already know the answer to whether or not you should call them.

Being sick is not what anybody wants but it is inevitable. If someone is facing a health emergency or terminal illness, it can be difficult to know the right things to say. Do you tell them everything will be OK? Or just change the subject whenever it comes up?
Here are some words of comfort you can say or send to that person to help them feel loved.
