This paper reports initial results from a study of worker absenteeism in the context of an experience-rated sickpay scheme. Under the scheme, workers are assigned to three discrete grade according to their absence history. The authors concentrate on estimating the effect of the grade boundaries on absence behavior and find significant effects on duration of absences, but not on their incidence. The data are drawn from payroll and personnel records of three manufacturing plants employing around 3,500 workers. They cover a period of eighteen months. Copyright 1991 by Royal Economic Society.
