Nearly half of all workers say they show up to work frequently while sick, according to a poll by staffing company OfficeTeam. The survey of nearly six-hundred office employees registered 49 percent of workers who go to work while sick or ill. Most medical experts agree it is preferable to take a day-off to recuperate rather than passing an illness on to coworkers.
I believe the same thing happens with the Malaysian employees. Sometimes, it's all about trying their very best to be a good employee though in this case, it will not.
