What is absenteeism?

Absenteeism is the failure to show up for scheduled work. This is distinguished from tardiness or lateness, which indicates a failure to report for work on time, and turnover, which indicates a permanent leave from work where the ex-employee is replaced. The main reasons for being concerned with absenteeism are increased cost to the organization, clues about employees’ mental and physical health, and employees’ job satisfaction.
If the employee is regularly showing absenteeism that could lead to termination of employment or suspension without paid.
