Ive heard this kind of thing before albeit not in an aviation environment. The employers in question did it to get round the fact that some people liked to take regular sickies. The problem comes with with people who are genuinely ill and dont do sickies. Lets face it, a lot of people dont go to the doctors unless an arm is hanging off.

It will certainly mean that some people will feel pressured into going into work when ill and the possible impact on safety. One solution in that situation would be for a sympathetic shift supervisor (for example) to send the ill part home but that wont be a possibility for a lot of staff.

As far as I am aware its UK law that we can self cert for the first 7 days but I guess argue your case and you will be victimised. Isn't is comforting to know that we have to do a HF course every two years :D
