Employee Absenteeism: A Summary of Research. ERS Research Brief.
Educational Research Service, Arlington, VA.
This publication provides a comprehensive review of the research literature on employee absenteeism. Although focusing on the absenteeism of educational personnel, the study also draws on the information available on employee absenteeism outside education--in business, industry, and government service. The major sections of the report provide current and trend data on employee absence; a review of the research on the causes of employee absenteeism, including personal factors, organizational factors, time-place factors, and the relationships between absenteeism and job satisfaction and employee turnover; costs of employee absenteeism; and measures for controlling employee absenteeism. A lengthy bibliography cites entries related to employee absenteeism in education, business, industry, and government. (Author/JM)
