[WiZ] The Public Sector Works a lot like this

Postby WiZ » Sun Jun 10, 2018 9:31 pm

Why did a branch of the British Public Sector distribute material to its staff on how to fake illness to get out of work?

Did they want them to fake illness? Want them to know so they could spot fakers?

Is the nature of the branch relevant? Medical? Administrative? Education? Military?

Is it for a particular mission they have? Once out of work, do they really avoid to do their job? Are they considered still in service? Military branch = navy? Air force? Army? A specific sector? A military branch working in UK? Outside uk?

Are real illnesses relevant in any way? Do they actually treat the real illnesses? The fake ones? Do they distribute the material or treat the staff/other people in wartime, peacetime, on exercises? Terrorism relevant, actual or threatened?

When working are those people soldiers with weapons with a particular mission (e.g. secure zones/prevebt attacks...)? Do they work where there is a war? Is the work they are doing their real job? (Is this the FA?) Or are they doing a work which is a coverage work and need for instance to fake to go home to report to the bosses the happenings? Are those army people "working" in strategical places (nuclear stations/opponent bases?)?

Is this intended for if they're captured or taken prisoner? If they're put into enemy work camps?

Is there a particular illness to be faked?

Did this happen during WWI? WWII? Earlier? Later?
