1. My company that doesn't have sick days

Sent this email out:

Any current employee REQUESTING time off due to corona-virus will require a Physicians documentation. You will also occur delays if your request and documentation are approved.

Not sure if it's ass covering figuring government may force them to?

2. What does: " You will also " occur(sic) delays . . ." mean?

I canít puzzle that out.

9. Probably. I guess it means

delays in getting your sick pay. A sentence that short really should have been easier to understand.

8. Maybe they meant "incur"?

It's maddening, the way business people mangle language.

5. Yes, let's send more people to doctors' offices to get "documentation"...

... because doctors aren't going to have anything better to do over the next couple months.

6. Yep. We never get anything. But we're supposed to be the epitome of rugged American individualism

4. A bit confusing...

I have received 2 emails from my employer. I am eligible for sick time due to new local legislation. (city of Pittsburgh). I am eligible for up to 2 weeks sick time if I become exposed/infected with Corona virus while at work. Not sure what it all means.
