Is it okay to tell someone who keeps saying that they’re too sick to go back to work that they must have a big savings account ?

    Very rude. You have no idea what is going on with them. They could be watching video games, going to other job interview or they could be getting chemo or recovering from multiple surgeries. If you are there boss you are entitled to a dr’s note. Other than that if you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all. Its just that in this case you have already acted like a jerk. I think you should bake this person a casserole which is a great gift for a sock person because it last for a few days and does not even have to be reheated.

    Easy to pass judgement when you do not know the facts.  Speculation and assumption are counterproductive.

    Yes because someone who keeps claiming to be sick just doesn’t want to work in many cases and deserve to be mocked for that.  It’s not fair that other employees have to pick up the slack.

    It's rude.  It sounds like you question if her illness is legitimate.

    Whatever you think about their action, it is impolite to mention the financial aspects of being off work.

    No. One doesn't speculate about what is none of ones business. 

  • No you should not say that. The person may be running up debts and may be in a very bad financial situation as a result of their poor health. Their finances are their affair, not yours.
