Not sure if this has happened yet in the US, but in Canada, Alberta government employees will have to swear that they were absent from work due to H1N1.
It was set up to decrease the workload on doctors – the declaration taking the place of a doctor’s note.
If an employee misses 3 consecutive days of work, they will need to appear before a commissioner of oaths and make a declaration that indeed they were sick from H1N1.
