I apologize if the answer to this question seems blatently obvious to some, but to me it isn't.
At the moment I'm off work sick. I imagine I might be well enough to go into work tomorrow, though not fully recovered.
Should you be at work whenever you're physically well enough to do so, or should I take days off until I'm fully recovered to prevent spreading my illness on to any other employees?
I work in an office environment alongside 8-9 other people.
Is this at my employer's discretion (should I just ask?) or is there a general rule?
- I live in the UK.
- I'm not 100% sure what it is I have. Basically the symptoms of a common cold except a bit more extreme, mixed in with hot/cold shivers and so on. My brother was off work last week with the same thing, so presumably I've caught it from him and it is infectious. My brother seems okay again now, so roughly 5 days from coming down with it to being back at work.
