Suppose if you're responsible for ensuring a large amount of work be finished before the end of the new year. A subordinate decides to use sick hours to take an entire week of work off. What would you do to address the problem?

Answer:

I start by finding out how much vacation time the worker used during the year. If the individual has used few vacation hours, I do not report the situation to my superiors, but will encourage the individual to remain at work during the week and consider using their vacation time during a less critical time for the company. If the individual has lied about being sick in the past to take time off work, I would refer the situation to the human resources department.
