Car Share joke is not funny for employers

Kayleigh has had enough of work and fancies “throwing a sickie”. That’s the scenario that had hilarious consequences in last night’s episode of “Peter Kay's Car Share” on BBC 1.

Despite John’s reservations, we saw Kayleigh call into her workplace, put on a sick voice and say she wouldn’t be in.

While we may all have had a good laugh about how the scenes panned out, in real life it’s a situation that can cause great difficulties for employers.

And it is why, at FirstCare, we have trained nurses to support and authenticate absence.
