Why is a staff member's absence 0.5 days?

If a staff member usually works for less than half of a full-time day each day, an absence logged will count as 0.5 days rather than 1.

This means that if this staff member was off for 2 days, this will total 1 day lost.

This is in line with DfE guidance that if a member of staff is contracted to work less than half a day, any absences should be recorded and if it is for sickness absence, the working days lost should be recorded as 0.5.
