Your Options When Employees Come to Work Sick
Employees have shown up sick for work. Can you send them home and require that they use their sick leave? Yes, you can. If you do send them home, reassure them that you want them to take the time to recover and that you will help to ensure their work gets done. Remind them that sick leave is offered so that they will stay home when they are sick. And if they are worried about lost wages, try to identify ways for them to make up the time once they return to health.
