Dear Experts, I have no more sick time, but I'm sick. What do I do? I ran out of sick time and my boss says that if I'm out sick between now and the rest of the year, I won't get paid for those days. I am coughing a lot and have a runny nose and don't want my co-workers mad at me for coming in and potentially getting them sick, but I need the money and can't afford not to work. Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#340 If you are out of sick days, you may just have to go to work. Boss might even send you home. (@gradversity) Q#340 Wear a mask if u go 2 wrk. Better 2 stay home; ur health worth day's pay. Stay in bed all wknd 2 recvr. (@juliaerickson) Q#340 Is there any work u can do at home? What about vacation/personal days? Use those 1st rather than go w/o pay. (@TaiGoodwin) Q#340 Don't go to office sick! Ask boss for opportunity to make up time. Talk to HR about using vacation time. (@jtodonnell) Q#340 Try to use a vac day so u get paid 4 the time. If u are that sick, stay home & take day without pay. (@DebraWheatman) Q#340 Not fair to expose coworkers. Speak w/mgr & see if you can make up time on wknd, after hrs or work from home. (@dawnbugni) Q#340 Stay home. Could cause real problems for immuno-compromised coworker. Hopefully have emergency fund for situation. (@AskAManager) Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
