"If the employee will not sign the `consent to release medical information' form, management will have to make its decision as to the reasonability of the cause for absence with the limited information it has at its disposal,"

Why not just ask Mommy to write a note . . .?

Any policy that discourages individual responsibility is a ruination. They only differ in rate of ruining.

This policy does so discourage. It is irresponsible for an employer to act like a parent. It turns employees into children. Good business is adult to adult.

The same thing happened where I work. The unions employees would work overtime on Saturday & Sunday, getting time and half and double time and then take off on Monday and maybe Tuesday. This would mess up production so they had to offer overime again the next week to make up for it. It was an endless cycle.

"Signing the waivers is optional for Delphi's 34,000 U.S. employees covered by the policy, and workers can limit the information that is released, company spokeswoman Luce Rubio said. But workers who withhold access to their medical records may face repercussions, she said."

Is it really voluntary if they face repercussions? On another note, I heard on the radio this AM that the absenteeism rate for UAW members is 10%. If that is the case for Delphi, then absenteeism has created 3,000+ jobs for the UAW. They should come out in favor of more absenteeism.
