Why do some workplaces punish workers for calling out sick? Do they prefer you come in sick and infect everyone else?

    I’ve had bosses who prefer you come in and cough and sneeze to get everyone sick vs stay home and get better. I think it’s a deep sadistic/masochist streak.

    Some places are just "sick" of how sick time is abused. Soooo many people call out sick cause they just want a paid day off, or long weekend, or whatever: in short they are NOT sick and just game the system.

    Result is companies can "ill" afford to pay sick time and lose the productivity. So they take away sick time from everyone (there is no law that say you MUST be paid when you are sick - that is why it is called a benefit). Everyone loses.

    In some cases, they do, if so, maliciously comply and scare off the customers with your sickness.
