Here’s a situation that never occurred to me. One of our employees was on vacation for a week, but was sick for two days.

Regardless of what you’re doing while you’re on vacation, it’s still vacation.” The employee can’t understand the problem, and I’m having a hard time articulating it any clearer than that. Has anyone dealt with this scenario? What should I tell her?—BM, Florida
