I think i can see both sides. Yes, it is a pain to make two calls…but I’ve also been on the other end with a co-worker calling in sick…to the person that may not come in until 830 (and the first person’s day starts at 8) so me, as the co-worker doesnt’ know for sure that my partner is sick until the supervisor makes it in. Now, if my co-worker called both his supervisor and that person’s supervisor, I’d know at 8 instead of 830.

It is doubtlessly annoying but it also protects the employee from being reprimanded because they called into a person who wasn’t there to hear the call in a timely manner.
