MOSCOW, October 20. /TASS/. Russian expert Vladislav Grib, a member of the Public Chamber, proposes to award extra vacation days to the workers to do not take sick leaves for twelve months, Izvestia daily says.
Grib has sent appropriate proposals to the Labor Ministry. He believes a measure of this kind may stimulate Russians towards opting for healthier lifestyles.
"We must pay attention to the importance to measures for stimulating healthy lifestyles," Grib said in a letter to Labor Minister Maxim Topilin. "One of the possible steps is to grant tax privileges to employers and to give extra vacation days to the workers who do not take sick leaves during a period of twelve months."
The workers who stay healthy and do not take sick leaves should enjoy the vacations that are longer three days as a minimum, he believes.
The measure should also dissuade workers from taking sickness certificates at random.
"It’s an open secret that physicians issue sickness certificates not infrequently to the people who are not at all sick," Grib wrote. "Many use them as opportunities to take days away from work instead of recovering from illnesses.".
