Lou Sanner, Anne Eglash, Hannah Keevil, James Shropshire and Patrick McKenna work in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Wisconsin. They weren't working today, they were out in Madison handing out sick notes for striking teachers.
"What employers have a right to know is if the patient was assessed by a duly licensed physician about time off of work," Sanner said. "Employers don't have a right to know the nature of that conversation or the nature of that illness. So it's as valid as every other work note that I've written for the last 30 years."
