SHIMABUKU, Rose Helen; MENDONCA, Helenides  and  FIDELIS, Ariana. Presenteeism: contributions of the control-demand model for a phenomenon understanding. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2017, vol.20, n.1, pp. 65-78. ISSN 1516-3717.

This study aims to understand the latest studies on presenteeism (the act of attending work while sick) based on the Demand-Control Model. It also aims to contribute to the discussion on the presenteeism, demand, control and social support, and establish a relation between them. For its achievement, we carried out a bibliographical research, relating theoretical constructs on the subject in national and international scientific database, in order to create an organized and systematized model. Through a current study on the relationship between psychosocial aspects of work and workers presenteeism, we realized a strong relationship between demands, control and social support at work and presenteeism, so that the high job demands are associated positively to presenteeism. However, there are gaps regarding the scientific understanding of this field of study, which are due to the shortage of national and international productions on the antecedents of presenteeism. Therefore, there is a broad field of study to be unveiled on this subject.

Keywords : Presenteeism; Demand-Control Model; Social support at work.
