A doctor allegedly wrote this scathing note to Pizza Hut over its sick leave policy

A doctor in Canada allegedly wrote a scathing note to Pizza Hut managers over the company’s sick leave policy.

In the note, which was posted to Reddit, the anonymous doctor slams Pizza Hut Canada’s requirement that an employee who called in sick must provide a doctor’s note as proof of his illness.

The employee has “a cold today and sensibly stayed home from work rather than spreading this to his colleagues/customers,” the note says. “I have no test for the common cold and therefore believe him/her, however you feel his time and mine should be wasted by making him sit in the walk in clinic for hours.”

A copy of a Pizza Hut employment manual from 2011 states that employees may be required to provide a doctor’s note to verify their illness when taking sick leave. The manual also states that employees can earn up to three paid sick days annually.

We’ve reached out to Pizza Hut to confirm its sick day policy and will update when we hear back.

Here’s the note:
