    Everyone gets sick sometimes. You should be able to take time off without worrying.

    At a good job you should still get paid if you’re scheduled to work but can’t due to sickness. Your contract should say how many sick days you can take each year.

    This is more than the legal minimum, which says you should only get paid if you are unwell for 4 full days. See Citizens Advice for more details.

Kingdom job reviews

  • Best thing

    Sociable job role

    Worst thing

    Work alone mainly, dangerous of getting hurt due to the nature of the job. Not paid enough for the danger we could encounter not protected if attacked. 39 minute commute to get to work. Late nights not sure how to book leave and when I ask no response.
