Sick leave faker caught on Facebook

Facebook LogoThis is a true event happening in a telecommunication company (AAPT) in Sydney, Australia.

Kyle Doyle, an employee of AAPT, was calling in sick on Thursday, 21st October 2008. His employer was asking him for a medical certificate to prove that he was truly being sick.

Below were the communication emails between the two that I got from a friend. I’ve replaced his employer’s name with an initial, to protect his identity, just in case :) (I’ve also removed all contact details attached on the email signatures).

From N (his employer):

N,

1 day leave absences do not require a medical certificate as stated in my contract, provided I have stated that I am on leave for medical reasons.

Hi Kyle,
Usually that is the case, as per your contract. However please note that leave during these occasions is only granted for genuine medical reasons. You line manager has determined that your leave was not due to medical reasons and as such we cannot grant leave on this occasion.

Hi N,
My leave was due to medical reasons, so you cannot deny leave based on a line manager’s discretion, with no proof, please process leave as requested.
Thanks
