Madrid, June 29 (EFE) - In 2021, workplace absenteeism cost the economy an estimated 37 billion euros gross, which represents 3.1% of GDP, after 1.701 billion work hours were lost, equivalent to 937,900 employees taking the whole year off.
Absenteeism in Spain skyrocketed to 7.1% in 2020 due to Covid-19, an all-time high, and although this rate fell to 6.6%, it is still the second-highest figure ever. In the first quarter of 2022, these records were surpassed, with absenteeism rebounding to 7.5%.
Almost 1.3 million workers do not attend their workplace for a single day, 7.3% of those protected by this contingency. The pandemic has affected the Social Security Institute more than any other time in its history.

An attendance bonus scheme rewards attendance at work, i.e., it deters short term absences that are avoidable. Therefore, as the High Court of Justice of Castile-Leon has ruled, the company cannot pay this incentive in proportion to the number of hours worked by the employee, as if they do so, this will give rise to a situation of wage discrimination.
Tardiness and recurring and unjustified absences may require different types of sanctions, and in extreme cases, can lead to dismissal. During the pandemic, absenteeism rates, which were on the rise in recent years, have increased even further.

The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) forecasts that more than 50% of Europe's population will be infected by the omicron variant of coronavirus within the next 6-8 weeks, according to Hans Kluge, WHO Regional Director for Europe. In economic terms, this forecast could mean an increase in workers testing positive, which will lead to absenteeism due to the illness.
The cost of absenteeism for the Spanish economy reached €92,075 million in 2020, more than 9% of the Gross Domestic Product, according to estimates by mutual societies. This includes the cost of sick leave benefit, the cost for companies and opportunity cost, i.e. the loss in the production of goods and services.
