Well i have taken a sick day today because i am finding out if i am getting a new job. If i get it, i need to go in therre this afternoon for a medical etc.

Do you think it is wrong to take a sick day for this reason? I would like ot mention the only reason i am looking for another job is because i am sick of having far too high a workload and not enough pay, there are also a few other reasons, one of them being a $300-$400 per week payrise.

Let me know what your thoughts are, i know business owners would be pissed...but :)

Nope. Not wrong..

Your company has their best interests in mind and you have yours.

Of course it is wrong, but as an aussie its your god given right- no duty to take sick leave at anytime you so choose (just so long as you aren't actually crook:dance:

If im correct, your an emplyee at bunnings, do it, they dont really need you at that place, they have more people to replace you, employees at bunnigns are just pawns to them, easily replaceable and no real loss. But your not wrong in any way at all anyway, no matter where you work

Nah, i work for an interstate transport company(which has just merged), my workload has doubled, my pay hasn't risen etc..


Julie, i agree it isn't right, but how else do you do it when they flat out refuse you an annual leave day?

man makes a good point.... technically it is wrong, but would they rather you not call in and just not turn up? or say to them while your there....'oh i need to leave at this given time so i can go to a job interview'.... they dont really leave you much option, so i wouldnt feel bad about it. take solice in the fact that youve done the right thing morally by making sure you can do your **** without fuking your boss over....nobody loses

Hopefully when you have the day off someone higher up has to do your job. That way they will see how much work you have been doing for stuff all pay. Most people go to work even when they are sick so I would say that they owe you a couple of days anyway.
Good luck on the new job.
