Employee shirking, Economics
The cost of employee shirking is an expense most retail sales companies face. As defined by Alan B. Krueger, shirking is "any employee action that reduces output." Krueger cites common examples of shirking Including theft, poor service, absenteeism, and high turnover. This study looks for statistical relationships between labor policies and the cost of shirking. We will also look at the cost effectiveness of using specific policies to decrease employee shirking.
