“I Don’t Want to Be That Guy”

New employees often feel a sense of trepidation until they have passed probation. Show up (on time) and work hard. But this can be a bad idea if you are really under the weather

We’re going into cough and cold season, and while it’s tempting to tough it out, coming to work sick can spread illness, compromise workplace safety, and prolong your recovery—even if it’s not COVID.

Communicate well with your supervisor when you are ill. Loop in HR or your union steward or representative if needed.

Use your time away from work to heal so you can get back on site as quickly as possible.
