Report: More Companies Using ‘sick Day Detectives'

(NECN) - Next time you want a mental health day, better watch out: your boss could be on your tail!

A new report says companies fed up with an alarming number of sick day calls are making calls of their own and bringing in private detectives.

According to Bloomberg Businessweek, a growing number of companies are turning to outside help to track down employees out on leave.

According to Kronos, a workforce productivity firm in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, nearly 57% of salaried workers have taken sick days when they're not really sick. That's a 20% jump from just a few years ago.
