Sickness absence is an important issue for workers, managers, and occupational health services. Most employees suffer health problems at some time during their career and face decisions on fitness in relation to their work. All employers will occasionally be concerned about the fitness to work of absent employees and what actions they might take to address this. Advising on sickness absence management and the fitness to work of absentees, individually and collectively, is a major activity for occupational health specialists.
