Sick at work

Posted:

Feeling feverish, but think your colleagues can't function without you if you take a sick day?

You may be setting yourself up for an even longer sick leave if you don't take a break.

A study of 12-thousand people in Denmark finds people who regularly went to work even though they felt sick were much more likely to have to take a lengthy sick leave later on.

Experts say a sick day or two every once in a while may allow employees to cope better with a demanding job and overall stress.
