Call centre worker caught out by boss after posting 'sickie' plan on 'Facebook'

Posted on Jul 01 2009
Call Centre Update News >>

To celebrate his day off Kyle, a 21-year-old call centre worker, updated the status on his Facebook page to reflect the fact.
Unfortunately for Kyle, his online boast did not go unnoticed by his employers.

Now an email exchange between Kyle and the HR department at the call centre where he worked has been forwarded around the world.
When Kyle protests that his absence was because he was ill, the HR employee simply forwards him a clip of his Facebook profile.

The exchange begins with an HR employee, Niresh Regmi, asking Kyle to provide a medical certificate for his day off.
Kyle objects to the request and says that his contract does not require him to provide a certificate if he is off sick.

However, Regmi is insistent and informs Kyle that his line manager has decided that his absence was not related to medical reasons
Seemingly angry, Kyle again refuses and insists that his leave is processed as normal.
It is at this point that Regmi simply replies: ‘I believe the proof that you are after is below’ and attaches a copy of Kyle's Facebook profile.

The call centre have said that they will be launching an investigation.
