Getting the flu is no fun. Besides costing you money in doctor's visits and medicine, it can be especially costly for companies when employees call in sick. The average flu case puts employees out of commission for four days, or at least 32 working hours.
To determine how costly the flu is for businesses in various states, GOBankingRates used data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to find the number of reported flu cases among people ages 18 to 64, then calculated the value of the time off work based on median wages in the state via data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
