For any business managing staff sickness can be a key issue. But particularly if you own a small business, absence can become critical.

A recent study by FreeOfficeFinder found that 30% of people have actually lied about being sick, compounding the problem.
“Out of the 10,000 participants, 3.097 admitted to lying about having time off sick in the past twelve months.”
