A former worker at a central Auckland McDonald’s restaurant has accused the branch’s management of potentially endangering its employees after a sign was put up discouraging staff from calling in sick amid the pandemic, Newshub reports. A photo supplied to Newshub shows a printed sign in a staffing area, reading: “Let’s not make each other work extra by calling in sick to work.” Several of the more common symptoms of the virus are similar to the flu, meaning COVID-19 can sometimes be mistaken for a common illness. Ten days after the staffer’s confrontation with the manager, McDonald’s Queen St was identified as a location of interest.
