M ANAGING YOUR SICK LEAVE
Is staying at home the best thing you can do? The NZ Herald's RAEWYN COURT reports. aking up w ith a scr atchy thr oat gives that sinking feeling ? fir stly at the thought of feeling ill for days or w eeks, and secondly because of how to deal w ith w or k . Do you r ing in sick im m ediately, or go in and see w hat develops?
M ost New Zealand em ployees ar e guar anteed a m inim um of five paid sick days a year after the fir st six m onths of continuous em ploym ent. Those five days can be used up pr etty quickly if you get sick, so it's tem pting to go in to w or k w ith a "just a cold". But as you sneeze over your colleagues, your vir al infection spr eads like w ildfir e and can r esult in m ass
absenteeism , r educed pr oductivity and low m or ale. Accor ding to the M inistr y of Health, r espir ator y vir uses such as colds and flu ar e spr ead by coughing, sneezing and dir ect contact w ith an infected per son. To avoid infecting other s, people w ith these sym ptom s should stay at hom e until w ell. Em ployees w ith diar r hoea and vom iting illnesses such as food poisoning and gastr ic vir uses should stay hom e until w ell, and for 48 hour s after the last episode of diar r hoea or vom iting. Car oline Sandfor d, executive dir ector at The Car eer Developm ent Com pany, says it's im por tant to infor m your boss or HR depar tm ent of your sickness as soon as possible.
"A phone call is best for this r eason and, if possible, befor e you nor m ally star t w or k ." How ever , som e or ganisations m ay pr efer a differ ent for m of com m unication such as em ail or inter nal m essaging, and Sandfor d suggests finding out w hat m ethod they pr efer befor e you need to use it. Som e people ar e hesitant to shar e the per sonal r easons they need tim e off, and other s m ay over shar e, pr oviding all the gor y details in or der to pr ove they'r e not playing hooky. Sandfor d says you'r e entitled to keep the r easons for your sickness to your self. "If you've been sick for thr ee consecutive days, your em ployer can r equest a doctor 's cer tificate
stating that you'r e sick, but this should not include pr ivate or ir r elevant infor m ation. And if they ask for one befor e the thr ee days ar e up, they w ill need to r eim bur se you for the doctor 's appointm ent." She notes that if a doctor has let you know how m any days you'll need to r ecover , it's im por tant to pass this infor m ation on to your boss and it's a good idea to r equest a doctor 's cer tificate at the sam e tim e, stating this. If you've taken sick leave because you'r e infectious but not too sick to look at your laptop, it m ay be tem pting to stay connected w ith w or k, r eplying to em ails and w or king on pr ojects. CONTINUED ON P2 >>
M an agin g you r sick leave <<FROM FRONT PAGE Sandfor d says that w hile ther e ar e som etim es ur gent things that only you can attend to, it's r eally up to you, your job, and w hether ther e ar e cr itical pr ojects on the go as to w hether you w or k fr om hom e. But she advises that if possible, having a com plete br eak is im por tant to ensur e a quick r ecover y.
One w ay to handle it is to acknow ledge the coincidental tim ing, but hold fir m . Say som ething like, "I w ould love to say I had too m uch fun last night, but I don't even like r ugby!"
...y ou 'r e en t i t l ed t o k eep t h e r eason s f or y ou r si ck n ess t o y ou r sel f
Sick leave is a benefit that is due to you as par t of your com pensation package, and ther e shouldn't be any guilt in taking tim e off to get w ell. How ever , som etim es you can genuinely fall ill after a long w eekend, the office Chr istm as par ty or the Rugby Wor ld Cup final, and then it can be har d to sound believable w hen you call in sick .
"Of cour se, this happens," says Sandfor d. "If your boss doubts that you ar e r eally sick, they m ay ask for pr oof fr om a doctor , but they w ill need to r eim bur se you for this if you have been sick for less than thr ee days."
Em ployer s m ay occasionally be confr onted by a situation w her e an em ployee has been diagnosed w ith a ser ious illness that m ay r equir e w eeks or m onths off w or k . Sandfor d says this situation needs to be handled w ith car e and em pathy.
"Your em ployee is m ost likely feeling vulner able and sensitive at this tim e. W hile being suppor tive and positive, it's par am ount that you find out as m any details as possible and seek m edical advice so you know w hat you'r e dealing w ith. The num ber of entitlem ents the em ployee has and the natur e of their em ploym ent w ill im pact on how you handle the situation. It's im por tant to stay infor m ed thr oughout the illness to keep the balance betw een m anaging the best tr eatm ent of the em ployee and looking after the business."

Fur ther m or e, those w ho kept up those hour s for m or e than 10 year s incr eased their potential for a str oke by 45 per cent. In New Zealand, the aver age full-tim e w or ker put in a hefty 42.7 hour s per w eek in 2018 accor ding to the Or ganisation for Econom ic Co-oper ation and
The latest study, published in July this year , follow s on fr om a 2015 analysis of m or e than 600,000 people that found those w ho consistently w or k m or e than 35-40 hour s per w eek have an incr eased r isk of str oke.

Fur ther m or e, in 2018, it w as r evealed that New Zealand is the four th w or st in the w or ld for unm anageable str ess, and the w or kplace is one of the m ain dr iver s. W hatever w ay you look at it,

The Str oke Foundation r ecom m ends getting r egular blood pr essur e tests and eating a diet low in salt as tw o pr actical m easur es to pr event str okes.

Her explanation about stained toilets, claim ing it w as due to leaving cleaning pr oduct on them too long, w as not cr edible, Tetitaha said. The bar scuffle w as also concer ning, as Hem m ingson w ould have been under police scr utiny. She also could have exposed Hem m ingson to cr im inal action as she adm itted to ser ving dr unk patr ons. How ever , she w as also ow ed holiday pay, as Hem m ingson had no legal ability to include it w ith her w ages, Tetitaha said.

Spice Room told the ERA that it had no idea at the tim e of speaking to Im m igr ation New Zealand that M r Nath w as at Hong Kong Air por t seeking to boar d a plane to Auckland. It denied M r Nath's allegation that it contacted Im m igr ation to advise that he w as not r etur ning to his em ploym ent. It said that it w anted him to r etur n.

The ERA found that on the evidence, Spice Room found it m or e convenient to em ploy another chef to r eplace M r Nath than w ait for his r etur n. It found M r Nath w as unjustifiably dism issed and did have a per sonal gr ievance. It has or der ed Spice Room to also pay M r Nath $10,424.96 as r eim bur sem ent for lost w ages and $22,000 as com pensation for hur t, hum iliation and injur y to feelings.

New Tah it i law t o pr ot ect jobs f or locals Fr ench Polynesia's assem bly has voted for a new law to take into account the dur ation of r esidency in the allocation of w or k . The m easur e, w hich w as appr oved by a vast m ajor ity, com es into effect next year and is aim ed at helping locals get jobs. Em ploym ent m inister Nicole Bouteau said it w as im por tant that jobs w er e r eser ved for Fr ench Polynesians w hen people w ith the sam e qualifications and exper ience apply. In a statem ent, the gover nm ent said such positive discr im ination
w as allow ed because of the autonomy statute enshr ined in the Fr ench constitution.

Call for employees treated badly by bosses to retain anonymity DAN SATHERLEY Unions w ant em ployees w ho w in legal battles w ith their bosses to r etain anonym ity. The Em ploym ent Relations Author ity (ERA) alm ost alw ays publishes its decisions in full, w ith both par ties nam ed. But this is having a chilling effect on w or ker s, unions say, stopping them fr om taking bad bosses to task . "I m ake sur e they under stand that if they go to the author ity, then their nam es can be r epor ted and ar e likely to be sear ched by r ecr uitm ent agencies," E tu union law yer Anne-M ar ie M cInally told Stuff on Sunday.
"People ar e ver y ner vous about being put in that position." ERA chief Jam es Chr icton said ther e w as evidence pr ospective em ployer s look up job applicants to see if they've m ade com plaints befor e, m aking it "difficult for som e litigants to find w or k after br inging a case in the author ity". Likew ise, em ployer s that ar e r uled to have been w r ongly accused still suffer a penalty of being nam ed publicly, a r epr esentative of Business NZ told Stuff. A r eview of the ERA dispute system next year is r epor tedly expected to be looking at the nam ing issue. -Newshub
