An innocent cough at work is no longer so innocent.

As the swine flu death toll slowly rises, most Americans want co-workers with flu symptoms to stay home. And if you come into work anyway, most of your colleagues will rat you out to senior management, according to a recent survey.

The survey by Mansfield Communications found that 91% of Americans say they want their co-workers to remain at home if they are infected with the H1N1 flu virus.
