Australian call centre worker Kyle Doyle made the news last month when he updated his Facebook status to say “Kyle Doyle is not going to work **** it I’m still trashed. SICKIE WOO!”
His employer caught wind of this and requested a medical certificate verifying the reason for his sickness absence. Doyle protested saying that as the leave was due to medical reasons and was only for one day the company policy did not require a certificate. The employer replied that the company had determined that the leave was not for medical reasons and sent a screen grab of the incriminating Facebook profile. In what is evidently classic Doyle style he admitted he was cornered, replying
“HAHAHA LMAO [laughing my a** off] epic fail. No worries man”.
The disciplinary investigation is ongoing …
