Absenteeism and employer costs associated with chronic diseases and health risk factors in the US workforce
from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Employers may incur costs related to absenteeism among employees who have chronic diseases or unhealthy behaviors. We examined the association between employee absenteeism and 5 conditions: 3 risk factors and 2 chronic diseases. Absenteeism costs associated with chronic diseases and health risk factors can be substantial. Employers may incur these costs through lower productivity, and employees could incur costs through lower wages.
