Definition Work Absenteeism. Description.


Work Absenteeism is the habitual pattern and practice of failing to turn up for work. A distinction should be made between absences for appropriate reasons (illness, medical reasons) and absence for inappropriate reasons (being drunk, being absent without any reason at all). Intermediate cases include severe personal or family problems, stress, inability to cope, work overload.


Normally, employees are contractually obliged to work during specified hours. Failure to communicate absenteeism in a timely way, or being absent for inappropriate reasons, may result in dismissal.


Absenteeism is the opposite of Presenteeism.


Most organizations monitor absenteeism closely. Reasons for doing so include:

  • Identifying employees who are in contract breach.

  • Looking for indications of poor morale.

  • Identify work-related diseases (sick building syndrome).
