all that sounds good to me. I just can't see forcing an employee to take 2 extra days off when they only want the one day or want to go home early. I don't have employees but if I ever do the one thing I plan on keeping in mind is its not there business and there not going to be as dedicated to it as I am. so just because I would be willing to work when I'm sick, I can't expect an employee to. honestly I am solo and even I don't work when I'm too sick. the work just has to wait and if the clients aren't willing to accept that then they are welcome to find someone else as far as I'm concerned. I even take days off when the heat is too excessive. I'll put in half a day if I can beat the heat then call it quits once it gets up there. there is no point killing yourself to make a buck and I wouldn't expect anyone else to kill themselves working for me. your sick, take the day off and come back the next day. you NEED more than a day, go see a doctor and bring me a note. but forcing days off to discourage employees from calling in sick or leaving early sick is garbage in my opinion.
