One of the most common forms of employee discipline involves time and attendance issue; more specifically sick leave abuse. This occorrus, for example, when the employee takes a sick day when he or she is not actually sick.
Well, what if a lawyer "plays' sick to get our of a trial date?? He or she can be in trouble-big trouble as this Jan. 12, 2012 article from Findlaw documents. A judge has threatened to impose a $1,000 fine and contempt of court on a lawyer for doing just that. The lawyer denies that he abused sick leave or committed any form of misconduct.
