    Worst thing about Royal Mail sick pay (full sick pay upon 12 months employment and access to a full range of OHS support) is it is abused by too many employees.

    Pays from day1 - good for the employee, difficult for managers to prevent short term absence

    It's money for being off sick but if you're off long term you need more money probably

    The best bit is that people get really long Sick Pay and time off work if they have sick note from doctor. The worst bit is having to take time off to support family
