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 is in line with DfE guidance on page 71 of the DfE's Workforce Census Guide, stating: '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'
