This infographic outlines the costs for employers based on the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases as of April 12, 2021. The assessment includes potential sick leave wages, short-term disability payments, and spending on employee benefits. The states with the highest lost work time costs are California, Texas, and New York. IBI used employment, wage, and leave benefit data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics and lost workday experiences contained in its own dataset of employer-sponsored disability claims.
