NEW LAW MAKES IT HARDER TO PLAY HOOKY!!!!

A proposed new law in Belgium would require any employee who calls in sick to be examined by a doctor. Workers who do not submit to an examination will lose a day’s pay. Lawmakers say the new rule aims for equality for white- and blue-collar workers, who are currently subject to different policies regarding sick days. And supporters say it will reduce so-called “social fraud.” But labor unions are already calling the potential law an invasion of privacy and say it amounts to “house arrest.” Perhaps sending a doctor to workers’ front doors isn’t even necessary- a survey found that a third of bosses spy on their supposedly-sick employees by checking social media.
