Workers should do their best to avoid getting the flu, or else it could be costly.
The 2012-13 flu season was one of the most severe in the U.S. in more than a decade and according to a new study, had two to three times the impact over a more typical flu season on the workplace, school, family and other segments of people’s everyday lives.
