    We had coverage for sick days up to a certain number of days according to the illness. Then the FMLA kicked in.

    Realize that there are many branches of 3M and so probably different policies different places. Where I work it is a bad sick time policy. You are punished if you do not give them 24 hours advance notice that you intend on being sick. This is not a joke! You have to give them 24 hours advance notice! If you wake up with a bad case of the flu and call in, you will be punished by earning a point. 6 points in a year and you might be out the door.

    There is sick pay, but you are penalized on a points system for using them. Too many points in a time period and you are terminated.

    For hourly employees, individual sick days come at an expense of "points" which can impact your yearly rating (which can impact being able to get a better paying job). For salaried, there is a stigma associated with taking sick days. Different policy surrounds short term and long term disability, and FMLA.

    No set number in my environment; if you are sick, call in sick. I assume management addresses any problems if someone abuses this policy.
