I called in sick wed-fri of this week being fairly ill. When i called in friday I was told I would need a doctors note. I told my sup if i wasn't feeling any better later friday I would see a doctor. My symptoms were quite less severe later that day and saturday they were all but gone. I read our new contract in is states; "With prior notification before returning to work, a doctors slip may be required for all absences of (5) or more consecutive days." Does the weekend count as those days so I do infact need a note? Since I was feeling better I couldn't really see going to a doctor for symptoms I "had". The five day thing is new to the new contract for us, it was three untill the new contract. Also does the note have to say what I had or just that I am healthy enough to return to work? Thanks for the help.
