Not many people do last that long! To be fair, I haven't known them actually get rid of anyone after 3 short absences, but certainly after longish ones, and Paul got a warning after one long and two short absences. It's 12 months from the last time you were sick, but if you've been off in the 6 months prior to that, they count that too.My work also has the same but way more than 3 periods and its over 12 months not 18. And covid related absences are not counted against it. Not that Im a company man, not at all, fuck the system and all that but I wouldn't last 6 months in your place!
Covid will be included as sick leave, but there's small print saying they can't issue a warning if that hang on a covid absence. Long covid is a different matter. Someone I know is in real trouble, and his long covid is plain for all to see.
Anyway, I can use flexi to escape at midday.
