    Going home from work through illness 29th Nov 17 at 6:03 PM
    If you had gone to work knowing that you were not at all well, and by 3pm ( normal finish time is 4.30pm) you knew needed to go home as you felt much worse (and your line manager was ok with that) would you expect to have to work back the 1.5 hours you had missed?

    A friend had the above scenario and has been told she needs to work the hours as and when. The specifics of the situation are not covered in the sickness policy. Is this usual practice?

    My friend works part-time and knows that full-time workers don't have this rule applied to them. Is that acceptable and where might she find guidance on the subject?

    I!!!8217;ve worked at several hospitals and one of them worked like that. People soon learnt that if you felt off you wouldn!!!8217;t go in at all rather than risk having to leave and then owing hours. I bet the person in this thread won!!!8217;t make the same mistake again.

    I agree, that is why I was so surprised. There is no incentive to try and go in.
