Are you really ill?

A very interesting article we were asked to contribute to recently on The Huffington Post site details the results of a survey into the excuses that people had given when taking a sick day while not actually ill.

There are some curious points to take from the article in regards to the real reasons behind 'sick' days which are taken for other reasons. It seems that having a flexible work life would reduce quite a few of them.

You can see the original survey information here:
