If your primary healthcare provider determines you to be ill, please follow the doctor’s orders and focus on your recovery. In the case of illness, please use your sick time. If your absence extends for more than three consecutive business days, please reach out to the Human Resources Service Center at email@example.com or 617-353-2380.
However, if your symptoms are minor and your primary healthcare provider suggests you stay out of work for precautionary reasons and your job is one where remote work is possible and you feel you could be productive, please consult with your manager to determine if working from home is feasible. In this situation and with your manager’s approval, you can work from home instead of using sick time.
