Can the boss force you to go home if you're sick?

"1) Can I ask my company to remove the sick person from the workplace?

"2) Is the employer required to remove the sick person from the workplace, as it is now (somewhat) unsafe?

"I'm a pretty healthy person, so I should gain a few bonus days because of my relatively good health. I just HATE it when people come in sick."

The article also addresses the downside of switching over to "paid time off" (PTO) from a more traditional vacation- and sick-time policy.
