I came across this article in Australian newspaper recently. The article suggests that employers are intentionally looking to employ managers and employees who are unlikely to get sick or go off on stress-related leave. Considering the cost of absenteeism in Australian is very high, it’s an interesting idea. You can read more directly from The Australian newspaper.
