The stiff upper lip lives on – half of Brits never call in sick for work, says survey

New research from Monster.co.uk has revealed that half of Brits (49 percent) have never called in sick to work, with only a quarter (27 percent) admitting to having taken just one day off in their current job or most recent job. This follows a warning by MPs earlier this year that employees are under increasing pressure not to take sick leave when they’re ill.
