Instant Leave of Absence Notes (

Here's something you know: employees sometimes take time off when they are not sick, or at jury duty, etc.

Here's something you may not know: There's a new website that actually sells pre-printed, official looking forms authorizing leaves of absence. Sort of like a fake note a kid gives to his or her school. The concept is not new, but the availability of excuse forms on the internet may be. The url is "my excused absence dot com" I'm not linking to it.

What will happen when an employee is caught using a fake note? What if a real doctor signs a fake note? Will a business sue the website for unfair business practices? Oh, the mind boggles.

Anyway, if you did not have enough to worry about, be on the look out for doctors' notes and jury duty excuses that may not be genuine.
