Work Absences Due to Injury or Illness and Employee Retention in the Child Care Services Industry Before the COVID-19 Pandemic

Articles and reports: 11F0019M2023005

Description: Despite evidence showing that early childhood educators and assistants are at risk of contracting infectious or non-infectious diseases or suffering physical injuries, no Canadian study has investigated the degree to which:

a) early childhood educators and assistants incur work absences due to injury or illness in a given year;

b) such absences are associated with an increased likelihood of leaving the child care sector during that year or subsequent years.

This study fills this information gap.
