Indeed my wife works for Tesco and if she's ever ill she has to speak with a manager when calling in.

I guess her team leader though would be the person that needs to know so maybe this, like your example Bob, is a way to try and de-encourage people from having a "duvet day" as it seems to be now called. Pulling a sickie.

Maybe stringent was the wrong word. We also have team leaders so the management level do not really deal with people being ill rather than the phoning in thing.

Most people do think it's to put people off doing so though but surely if you're ill you're ill. A manager isn't going to change that.

I'm a firm believer in believing the best about people rather than assuming the worst.

Senior citizens have the experience but they cannot move fast enough. They are slowed by their age and cannot keep up with the younger ones anymore.Companies want young and energetic workers instead of having experienced but slow employees.

I couldn't disagree more. It totally depends what field you are talking about. These so called young and energetic employees can also be immature and unreliable.

I can see it a bit from both perspectives. Great debate here  Smiley.

I've said this before here but the older people here are much better to work with than the younger ones.

I lean towards the older sense of this discussion than the younger. Maturity over immaturity always wins in my book.
