    Should Your Employer Allow You Time Off To Watch FIFA World Cup At The Local Bar With Your Friends?

    As an incentive for the hard-work you've done for him/her over the years?

    yes, because it will be the only time they get to watch it live in their life meaning its very important if you do not half of them will just lie say their sick and go watch it

    I agree with moderdays however the employer does have a business to run so it is no good to him if most of his staff are down the pub and if the staff pull a sicky he/she will know

    Before I retired to look after my wife, my employer used to give us time off to watch the England games.  We were given the choice of unpaid leave or flexi working,  I think it was a good move because it avoided sickies and it was controlled, he knew when people were going to be there and when there would be a reduced labour force.

    Of course those who dont like football (not myself) will have to pick up the slack, should they be allowed to slouch when the SuperBowl is on? Or Rugby WC?

    Dont get me wrong, I hate missing football, but if you cannot get the time off, pulling a sickey is not the answer.

    Having said that, daft times for games just highlights how the game should be getting played elsewhere, without that bloody noise. TV on mute for me
