Workers are afraid to call in, what does this mean during a pandemic?

A recent poll of 2,000 Americans revealed that many are afraid to call in out of fear of retribution from their employer.

In total, 58% of that 2,000 felt that way.

Many feel that their place of employment discourages them from calling in when they don’t feel well, especially Black and Latina women. They are 10% more likely to not call in sick out of fear of their supervisors.

55% are required to give a reason for calling in. Two out of three of that 55% feel their boss does not believe them when they call in.

On average workers went into work ill about 3 times this year.

Many employees are saying they feel they can only use sick days if they think they may have COVID-19.

68% feel they simply can’t afford to take a sick day. 63% feel guilty when they do take one.

The biggest reason aside from fear of their employers is the financial burden that comes with taking sick time.
