One of our clients has a greenkeeper problem: he’s off sick far more than they’d like.
So far in this calendar year, he’s had 23 days off sick; all of them odd – a day or two here.
Which is more than everyone else in the club combined.
They haven’t been happy about the situation for a while but became even more incensed when the rumours started spreading that he was working somewhere else on his “sick” days.
The suspicion turned to conviction quite quickly, and they began telling us that they KNEW he was working somewhere else, and that his car had been “seen” outside another company.
It all seemed slightly fishy to us – the company in question isn’t on a main thoroughfare, so how could he have been “seen” enough times to be sure that that’s what he was doing.
