Illness Outbreaks Bring Raw Deal for Some Johns Hopkins Employees

They say it’s the policy that’s always been in place, but it seems pretty raw to me. The Johns Hopkins at Keswick complex was closed twice recently due to illness outbreaks. The administrative workers, who were barred from coming in, are being forced to use vacation days to make up the lost time. And if they don’t have any to spend, Hopkins will lend them some, to be paid back later. Yeah. Thanks.

The situation maybe short of tragic, but it gives me sympathy rage. So it must be incredibly frustrating for the workers forced to waste hard-won vacation time on an unwanted day off.  So let’s have a moment of silence for the administrative employees of Johns Hokpins’s Keswick complex.
