Default time out Find out when to call in sick

Feeling like crap? Forget your deadlines and don't worry about taking the time off. Stay home from work. The Harvard Business Review estimates that a new trend of "presenteeism" can cost employers $150 billion each year, since sick workers are less productive, take longer to get better, and often infect their colleagues. Use this chart of symptoms to determine whether you should schlep into the office or stay in bed.
Get Under the Covers
These symptoms mean you're sick and contagious. Stay home and call your doc.

1. You have a fever over 101 degrees.
Might Mean The flu or a bacterial infection like bronchitis

2. Your eye is red with creamy drainage or matted shut.
Might Mean Conjunctivitis ("pinkeye")

3. You're coughing up green phlegm, are short of breath, or feel tightness in the chest.
Might Mean Pneumonia or bronchitis

4. Your throat is sore and you can see white patches inside of it.
Might Mean Strep throat

5. You have nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.
Might Mean Gastroenteritis (stomach bug)
Don't Waste the Sick Day
You're not that sick. Chances are, you're suffering from allergies or at the tail end of a cold or virus (and noncontagious).

A. You're stuffed up and sneezing.

B. You have a dry cough.

C. You have postnasal drip.

D. Your throat is scratchy but not sore.
