5.4 per cent sickness absence
The share of employees who had doctor-certified sickness absence in the 3rd quarter of 2015 was 5.4 per cent.
|3rd quarter 2015|
Approximately 130 000 employees was absent from work due to doctor-certified sickness in Q3 2015. The introduction of a new register on employees has caused a break in the time series, and we can therefore not say if this is a real increase or just a result of the new register.
Adjusted for partial sick leave, the share of employees with sickness absence certified by a doctor was 4.6 per cent.
