so here is the situation
Young girl I work with was really sick last week with a flu type bug to the point she had the shakes felt like puking coughing and sneezing everywhere. Now we have just found out we are UTD so I have told the girls at work and ask if they are sick to not come In ( we work with the public anyway)
So she came to work worse on Friday and I had a whinge and said she had to go home our manager didn't agree and was going to let her stay... She was puking and shaking with the flu WTF so we ended up having an arguement about it and she left he didn't talk to me for the rest of the day the. Comes out with "you need a dr cert to say u can't be near sick people" like WTF!!
Was I being unreasonable?
Ps now I'm sick

Not unreasonable at all. Your employer has a duty to keep your health and safety protected when you're at work. And saying it's ok for a very obviously sick person there, risking infecting everyone else, is ridiculously stupid and selfish. It also makes no sense because instead of having one sick employee off work, he could have several if they catch it.

Who on earth goes to work when they are vomiting? At my work you aren't allowed to be at work until you've had 24 hours without a vomit. I can't imagine any employer encouraging such ill employees to be at work.
Aside from the fact they'd be infecting the other staff, they are hardly going to be productive.

No way the sick person should be at work if they are that sick. I would go above that manager and file a complaint perosnally.

who goes to work if they are that sick?
and what manager in their right mind lets someone who is that sick stay? All that happens is that other people get sick ...
You do not need a Dr's certificate to say that you cant be around sick people - you need your workplace to provide a safe (and healthy) working environment, which does not include being exposed to someone who is very obviously too sick to work.

No sane adult should be at work sick like that.
It drives me crazy when sick people go to work. .spread their germs. And then others end up sick.
Your boss should have sent her home.

She definitely shouldn't have been there. Hope you don't get sick!

WTH was your boss thinking!? Now he has (at least) 2 sick employees. Where's the logic in that?
I'd go to work sick on Monday, cough and sneeze alllll over him, alllll day, very deliberately. Then when he complains tell him he needs a Drs certificate to say he can't be around sick people

Shouldn't have gone anywhere near others and thats wrong of your boss

Are you full time/part time? Do you have sick leave available to you?
If yes, I'd get a certificate saying that, then if someone gets sick you get a day off, and most likely the other person will go eventually, then he'd be 2 people down.
What an idiot of a boss!! Not only spreading the illness with workers but the public as well
