The table below presents the total number of days the Fonds’ permanent employees were absent from work, which includes absence days paid by the Fonds (absences due to health conditions, accidents or a particular situation affecting the employee) and absences paid by the Fonds’ permanent employee group insurance plan. Absences are expressed in person-years, with one person-year representing 1,820 hours (52 weeks times 35 hours per week). The total figure for work time during the period does not represent exactly the number of permanent employees as at May 31, 2013, as work time data take into account the timing of the arrival or departure of permanent employees during the year.
The work-related accident situation is as follows: there was one accident at the end of the year; the employee has not yet returned to work. The number of lost work days during the year resulting from this accident was minimal.
