Although, for some time now, absenteeism has been a highly debated issue, researchers have gained little insight into the processes that precede it. Recent studies show a need for simplification of the models that try to explain absenteeism as well as a need for knowledge of the role of behavioral determinants. In this study we use the relatively simple theoretical framework of planned behavior to investigate the cognitive and motivational causes that influence employees’ decisions to report sick. For this purpose we have looked into the intentional and actual absenteeism of 600 employees of a general mental hospital.
