If you are planning for ‘business as usual’ on Monday, you might want to think again. Roughly 14 million Americans are expected to call in sick to work on Monday, making the day after the Super Bowl the biggest sick day of the year! Or what the news refers to it as “Super Sick Monday.”
Monday After the Super Bowl is the Biggest Sick Day of the Year
Monday is so notorious as the day people call out of work that 1 in 5 Americans say they have called in sick over the years. This year it is expected to be down from last years 16.5 million, but don’t be surprised if some of your employees are MIA.
Keep in mind that the numbers do not account for those who are actually sick. This year has been one of the worst flu seasons on record with over 12,000 individuals hospitalized. And trust us when we say if your employees say they are sick don’t let them come in.
More than 111 million people are expected to tune in this coming Sunday for Super Bowl 52. While the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots compete for the championship title, millions of chicken wings and pizzas will be consumed making getting up for work the next day even more difficult than an average Monday.
