    1. unscheduled absenteeism costs roughly $3,600 per year for each hourly worker and $2,650 each year for salaried employees.

      Interesting to see hourly vs salaried breakdown of absenteeism costs

    2. Childcare and eldercare - Employees may be forced to miss work in order to stay home and take care of a child/elder when normal arrangements have fallen through (for example, a sick caregiver or a snow day at school) or if a child/elder is sick.

      How often is this happening? What is the loss to the company for a profit standpoint?
