P: have you finished going through the contract?
K: yes, but I have a few questions for you.
P: Ok. Ask away.
K: first, I’d like to know if you offer employees sick leave.
P: yes, employees can take up to 10 days of sick leave per year. However, in order to get paid, you’ll have to bring in a note from the doctor’s.
K: even if I’m only sick for one day?
P: that’s correct.
K: that’s pretty strict, if you ask me.
P: well, we’ve had to add that to the contract bec
ause we found that many of our employees were taking almost one sick day a monty, even though they weren’t sick.
K: I see. I guess that makes sense.
P: do you have any other questions?
K: yes. Maternity leave is mentioned in the contract, but there’s nothing in the contract alout paternity leave. Do you offer anything to fathers?
P: we do actually. We can add that as an amendment to your contract.
K: how many days of paternity leave do you offer?
P: men are allowed to take 10 days of paternity leave for their first child.
K: why are women allowed so much more time for materniry leave?
P: qwll, women are the ones giving birth. I think it’s fair to give them more time, don’t you?
K: I guess so. I don’t have any other questions. Should I sign here then?
P: yes, please.
