The information provided is based on certified and uncertified sickness categorised as Anxiety, Stress, Depression and Work Related Stress.
It is important to note that during 2014 ‘managing attendance’ was a priority for managers across all states departments which raised awareness of the accuracy and reliability of reporting employee absence data.
This increased capture of data is likely to have contributed to the increase in reported days off in general but also the more accurate categorisation of reason for sickness: ie previously managers may have selected the ‘miscellaneous’ category rather than stress or anxiety.
