My employer asks me why I'm taking so many sick days, to point out that I'm taking them too much and I should stop. I don't know how to respond to that, my first thought is "it's none of your business, it's between me and my physician".
Should I say I'll try to take them less? But hey, I'm not taking them because I want to, my physician told me to take it.
Of course there is an actual medical reason. And this is my physicians job to verify and officially state that. I'm getting paid sick leave from my physician and according to local law I'm not allowed to work at that time. So it's not my decision to take the leave, nor the employers.
How to I respond to this?
