It's flu season now, but for some Singapore workers, there will always be a good reason to go on medical leave.
Nearly one in five Singapore workers (18.3%) admitted to feigning sickness to get medical leave. Of these, half (49.1%) revealed they would play ‘hooky’ from work three or more times a year.
Employers also report a surge in the number of reported sick leaves in December (20.2 per cent), followed by February (13.1 per cent).
