About one in four employees in a cohort of 408,000 US workers took a temporary leave of absence from work because of illness or injury in the period 2008–12. They accounted for nearly 60 percent (about $6.5 billion) of total worker health care and disability payments. This finding underscores the importance of workplace care management, lifestyle management, and health and safety efforts to prevent disability leaves.
