London - Most workers might be rolling their eyes when their colleagues call in sick, according to a new survey in the US.
In the survey of 1 000 people conducted by ColdEeze.com, a whopping 80 percent admitted that sometimes they don’t think their colleagues are telling the truth when they call in sick, and seven percent think co-workers are always lying.
The biggest red flags? When it’s a Friday or Monday, or that the staff member seemed fine the day before, not to mention the old “they don’t sound sick on the phone” test.
Meanwhile, 78 percent thought as many as half of their colleagues fake sickness at one point or another, and 43 percent said a fellow worker has actually confessed to them about faking sickness.
Another 18 percent said they were bold enough to confront a colleague or employee when they became suspicious.
