He said: "If I hadn't gone in to save the kids on that beach that day my wife and I would still have a job.

err, no he won't because he was fired for being dishonest (taking a trip while on a sick leave?).

Unless a holiday abroad was specifically approved as a treatment for work-related stress then it's only right that they were fired. It's also worth pointing out that wrestling a shark cannot be less stressful than staying at home.

I find it funny that a Children's Charity fired him for.. helping children..
I wonder though, in what way do they propose that you relieve stress during your 'stress leave', if the repercussion of doing something to relieve it can cost you your Job. If he was taking sick leave, I'd understand; but stress leave should be used to de-stress which would imply a vacation or whatever means to de-stress.

Do people actually use sick days when they are sick? LOL Sick days gets used for "tired as hell cuz I partied too much last night, nahhh... not going to work today" days. LOL

No, they were fired because they were dishonest. It's really not difficult to understand.
If I was on sick leave for stress then I'd make sure to get permission from the doctor and employer beforehand. I wouldn't simply book a holiday to Australia for two months. It's common sense.
