    Re: regardless of his return.

    Our client (the main contractor) and Aramco (the owner) asking request an immediate replacement for Mr Felix regardless of his return.

    (Mr Felix is went has gone on sick leave to his home country. There is some doubtness doubt on about his return.)

    I want to use the word 'regardless.'

    Could you please correct my post?


    Are you saying that you need to replace him regardless of the fact that he might be coming back? Why do you need to use the word "regardless"?

    Re: regardless of his return.

    Yes. He can't join again as his sick leave has crossed more than 20 days. As per company policies maximum 14 days only allowed, otherwise need a replacement.

    Re: regardless of his return.

    I'd say something like "regardless of when you expect him to return."

    Can't join what again? I don't understand that part.

    See above.

    Surely Mr Felix (note that this is only correct if his surname is "Felix") knows that he has gone over the 14-day limit for sick leave so he must realise that he has no job to come back to.

    You might be interested to know that in the UK, it's virtually impossible for a company to fire someone because of their sick leave without a protracted HR procedure, during which the company has to make every attempt to make it possible for the employee to continue his/her employment around the medical problem.
