Abstract

This article argues that our understanding of absences and absenteeism, deriving from seminal studies in the sociology of work and employment, has been overtaken by hugely significant developments in political economy, regulation and employment relations. A new research agenda that addresses the changed oragnisational politics of absence management and the consequences for employees is urgently required.
