Absence Rate

Absence Rate

The full-time employees who do not work full-time in a given week, expressed a percentage of total employees in a given company or industry. The absence rate does not consider whether a given absence is legitimate; it only observes that the employee is not at work. In general, the absence rate is higher in companies with more generous employee benefits. Companies seek to keep their absence rates to the lowest level possible.
