Question 26

As the finance clerk for your division, you must obtain the signature of your supervisor on all sick leave forms so that employees are paid for their sick days. Departmental policy states that employees who are absent from work for more than two days must complete Form A-2, and they need to obtain a medical certificate justifying their absence. You must receive these documents by the fifteenth of the month in order to reimburse employees for sick days by the end of the same month. On the fifteenth of the month, your supervisor informs you that many of the forms submitted by employees are incomplete, and that this situation must be rectified. At the same time, your supervisor returns an A - 2 form to you and refuses to sign it because the date on the medical certificate and the date on the A - 2 form are not the same. Your supervisor will not sign the form until the error is corrected, and you are asked to notify the employee.

Your supervisor wishes to emphasize that:
1.Sick leave is a privilege, not a right
