I have noticed that whenever any of my colleagues takes a sick day, they send an email to the department that includes details about their illness. For example:
I woke up with a splitting headache and I need to lie down and perhaps call the doctor. So I will not be available today.
To me, this seems like a violation of personal boundaries. My employer (and especially my colleagues) have no need to know any details about my illness. My emails look like this:
I need to take a sick day today. I anticipate being available tomorrow.
I believe that my only obligation is to follow the company policy on sick days (timely notification, not exceeding the limit per year, etc.) Am I wrong here?
