I remember getting written up for having to leave work to pick a sick child up from school 3 times in a 3 month period. I worked hard and volunteered to work over when I did not have to, but I missed a grand total of 4 hours of work in 3 months, (which I made up for, by the way) due to my children being ill, and I get reprimanded. I had sick time and that did not matter. It was still a negative against schedule adherence and more dings could have led to my dismissal. Sick time or not. How 'bout we make it so Sick days, paid or not, legally can not be used against you at all as long as you have a doctor's excuse.
