The Merrill Lynch Sick Day Policy

This seems a tad harsh: 40 sick days reduced to 3 days per calendar year. From Bloomberg:

Workers out more than three days must discuss the matter with their managers, Merrill said in a memo to employees. Anyone absent four or more days may lose pay, and could face termination at nine days. The rule took effect May 14. Managers have discretion to waive the limits on a case-by-case basis.

How generous, Merrill Lynch! A pox on you.* Clearly they are not up to date on the effect of presenteeism.

*By "you" I mean the corporate entity, which has the legal status of a person
