Quotation in “The psychology behind the subtle pressure to work when sick”

cover-bbc-20161014I was quoted in an online article published by the BBC on sick leave by Georgina Kenyon, an editor and journalist. (PDF)


“Michael Tam, staff specialist in general practice at Fairfield Hospital, in Sydney, Australia advises taking time off at the beginning of a bad cold, especially if you work in an industry where you will be in close contact with lots of people, such as hospitality, or in a caring role.

Even if you work in an office, Tam offers the same advice, since staying away will prevent the spread of the illness.  Got a stomach bug? Stay away from work for two days after vomiting and diarrhoea stops.”
