Sick leave among bureaucrats fell sharply in 2020

Published October 29, 2021 at 10:44 AM

When it comes to long-term sick leave outside the state, the reduction is not as large, according to the Swedish Social Insurance Agency.

The union believes that the opportunity to “work” at home during the pandemic has made it less necessary for the mainly female employees in the bureaucracy who have previously used the opportunity for sick leave.

– An appreciated change due to increased flexibility that can help make it easier to put together the puzzle of life, says Britta Lejon, union president for ST, to TT.

At the same time, the number of long-term sick leave in the bureaucracy began to decrease as early as 2015, so the decrease is not believed to be solely pandemic-related.
