Here’s how you can spot the signs of an impending epidemic and help an employee make the right decision about coming into work without overstepping any HR boundaries.

with the kind of environment we have; the pollution, the changing weather, and the stress -- it actually all goes down to stress. stress at work, at home, everywhere.. you will eventually get sick. but thanks to the health card, we can get sick anytime. loljk

Infection in the workplace is a big problem. The issue is that one sick employ can easily turn into many, especially in a close shared work space. Often times, employees who feel well enough to work, and who are on a tight deadline, but still might pose a threat of contagion to others in the office, may simply choose to work from home for a few days. Of course, establishing a mobile work environment where possible is another great way to cut down on the amount of illness spread among employees.

I agree. Employees who pose a threat of contagion should choose to stay home rather than spread their contagious tentacles to their fellow employees. He'll become a liability if they infect half of the workforce with what they've brought. Better safe than sorry.
