Employment: Presenteeism - Centre for Mental Health
"Productivity losses caused by health problems are more likely to take the form of presenteeism rather than absenteeism among white-collar workers, particularly professional and executive staff, than they are among blue-collar workers. This is pushing up the costs of presenteeism, as the balance of employment shifts away from manual work and towards higher-paid non-manual jobs."

"Presenteeism tends to go up and absenteeism down when jobs are at risk, as employees seek to reduce their chances of being made redundant by maintaining a good attendance record even when unwell. The current weak state of the labour market is therefore increasing presenteeism and its associated costs."
