Contracted workdays and absence


Barmby, Tim; Nolan, Michael; Winkelmann, Rainer (2001). Contracted workdays and absence. The Manchester School, 69(3):269-275.

Abstract

We present results of a negative binomial model on the determinants of the number of days of absence in a given year for a sample of 2049 workers drawn from three factories. We find evidence of the terms of the remuneration contract being important and we offer an interpretation of the differential effect of the company sickpay scheme on the behaviour of workers contracted to work four or five days a week.
