where I work in the UK we pay six months sick pay at full rate and an additional 6 months at half pay; it's great for those that need the help ie. our head gardener needed to have his lower leg amputated, another member of staff has cancer and needed time for kemopharapy. I've had two chefs in 5 years go off sick with 'depression'; they are too depressed to work but make miraculous recoveries after six months; that really pisses me off. I lost my Dad in January and managed to continue working, only taking the time off needed for funeral etc.
What can you do!

Hate that, and experience it all too often over the years.
I've had employees not show while owing me 20 bucks.
I figure I got off cheap.

so he called wed. AM and said Sunday on his way to work he had a seizure on the bus and has been in the hospital........my question to him was if he's been in the hospital for 3 day's why would'nt he call his work or instruct someone to call for him his response was that they, the hospital, had his cell phone and he was'nt able to retrieve our phone #!!!!!!!..... we're in the phone book!!!!! anyway i just cleaned out his locker and gathered his knives.....how come it's so hard to find a responsible cook!!!!!!!!

Oh brother... well even if he did have the seizure as he says it is still his responsibilty to get someone to call in for him. I've seen what seizures can do (my son had one when he had his brain tumor last year) but in my experience the person comes out of them and is back to themselves fairly quickly so he could have called in after that.

It's funny... one of the other guys on the line and I were talking today about our KM and AKM both who are no longer with us. I think that alot of people just don't take their jobs seriously or think they're irreplaceable and they can do what they want.

I hope you find a good, responsible cook soon!

I've never not called when I couldn't make work. Ever! It's rude and disrespectful, not to mention the best way to get fired in a hurry.

Even when I had my wreck and was unconscious, my ICE in my cell phone was my mother , who then called my boss once she got to the hospital and made sure I was still breathing.

I always call in if I know I have to miss work and I usually give them lots of notice too. I also call if I am going to be late.. it's just common courtesy.

The only thing I never liked about firing a Cook or Chef in this business is, they have to gather their KNIVES before they leave............I think if I owned a gun shop I would fire people off premises..............................Bill

If you no show no call you fired your self. Good luck getting un-employment. No way would I ever give some one that pulls that the satisfaction of a text or any thing else in writing that says "you are fired" or some thing to that effect.

I`ve been down this road alot! What gets me pissed the most is thinking of the added work and stress that it puts on my other "hard working employees". Then its really easy to lose a "dead weight" for the sake of the rest of my team.
