    My company has a 6 x month full sick allowance and let's just say there are some that take full advantage of that.

    It is like any office, some proper take the piss, they come in for a couple of days, then you don't see them for a couple of months as they're off with 'Stress'. The process goes on for years as a) They know they have a good thing and very few companies would give them so much sick, so they will never leave and b) No other company would touch them.

    Issue is there is so much Red tape. For a big company to get rid of someone for long term sick can drag on years and HR are ultra careful.

    Everyone takes the odd sick day but some do take the piss.
