I got sick badly and applied to use some of my sick leave left. But my manager in STT rejected my request. What should I do?

Let this be a reminder for all future BBH employees! , lolz. if you think this is absurb, wait till you see the bonus policy. You can't be ejected, trust me HR will mute the manager.

State Street is acting more and more like a socialist state. We must all resist. It is happening this time with a simple sick leave request. It will happen more and more. Stop the socialism at State Street from spreading. Stop the tyranny.

It’s all very clear.

If you look in the Kronos tool which btw was probably developed as some eighth grade class project, you accrue 40 hrs of sick time per year.

Beyond this, you have company paid short term disability. No idea how long this is or what compensation rate is.

Then you have the option to buy long term disability which I believe will cover 70% of your base. In this case, when you have recovered from your illness, you have no guarantee what job/role you will return to.

And if you go decades without a single sick day, no one will ever know or care. Totally warped policy IMO.

I spend over an hour searching any policy changes on sick day use. I don't see any related specifically for this year. Also, if I am sick, why do I have to use my vacation left rather than use my sick leave left? One comment from the above seems very unreasonable.

Get a doctors note stating you’re sick. Hand it to her/him/it in person and be sure to eat Taco Bell the night before so you can cut a very sme11y f@rt in person right in front of her/him/it.

Don’t apologize.

There could be something bigger at stake here. Maybe review the sick leave policy (a lot has changed over the year) carefully before you inquire. It could be you were supposed to use up all your vacation / personal, etc. time first. Even if you fight it and succeed, you will always be watching over your shoulder for retaliation. That happens and companies are very good at covering up and documenting everything.

@Post ID: @yiw+1dWCHoA0 agree with your post.

It was so much easier to apply for short or long term disablility before they outsourced that function.
You would tell your Boss you were taking short term or long term disability just as an fyi so he or she could plan the work schedule.
Then you go to HR fill out the old fashion paper forms.

The biggest issue with doing things online is it you make one tiny tiny mistake it gets rejected.

Just try doing the online expense form Yikes

Below is the exact statements received from GHRServiceCtr: "Your Time Off request from .... is Refused following your manager's review. To view any further detail regarding ... [link to Kronos]". But when I following the link to Kronos, there is no comment at all.

Your manager has nothing to do with approving a leave. If you are putting in for a sick day, call in that morning. It can't be rejected if you have sick time left. Worst comes to worst you take a day or 2 unpaid.

What are you talking about? That is not how it even works. You apply for sick leave on online via Hr ( which completely sucks by the way. You have to remember HR works for SSB NOT YOU) and submit your medical paper work. Your manager has absolutely no say in your sick leave. You do have to submit the right medical paper work though and an id--t from HR once approved will follow up with you to see how fast they can get you to come back. WORK WITH YOUR DOCTOR to get all the time you are allotted and need. GOOD LUCK!!
