City officials in Lorain, Ohio are on blast this week after checking on workers who ‘call in sick.'
This, after the city started using a nurse to knock on the doors of sick employees, checking to see if employees are abusing sick time on the city's dime.
The Lorain Police Department Union just sent a scathing letter to the city because employees weren't notified of the new policy. The department made the discovery after a nurse showed up on a sick dispatcher's door step. The worker was so upset by the surprise visit, she began to cry.
The union claims the new policy is in clear violation of their privacy. "They are totally not trusting us. They give us a gun and badge, but yet they are going to send a nurse to our house to take our temperature and blood pressure. It's uncalled for" say LPD employee Kyle Gelenius.
City officials say the nurse visits began after they noticed a pattern develop in some departments over sick time abuse.
Now, it appears the city will be rethinking the knock on the door and will sit down with unions in the city to discuss it. "We are a new administration, and we are going through some growing pains. Unfortunately, this is one of them. We will work through it, hopefully we have the best services for the citizens of Lorain, and we will go from there" says Derek Feuerstein with the City of Lorain.
