Humans and Employee have long been recognized as complex, nonlinear systems interacting dynamically. Modern economic theory assumes that human decision-making involves rational Bayesian maximization of expected utility, as if humans were equipped with unlimited knowledge, time and information-processing power. Decisions are an inevitable part of human activities. Each day life is full of decisions and choices. An important question is how people make (absenteeism) decisions. Specifically, researchers are interested in assumptions, beliefs, habits, and tactics that people use to make decisions. Research suggests that brain considers various sources of information before making a decision. However, how does it do this? In addition, why does the process sometimes go awry, causing us to make impulsive, indecisive and confused decisions; kinds that can lead to risky and potentially dangerous behaviours? Human behaviour is not the product of a single process. To a certain extent it reflects interaction of different specialized subsystems. These systems usually interact seamlessly to determine behaviour, but at times, they compete. Outcome is that brain sometimes argues with itself, as these distinct systems come to different conclusions about what we should do. Human behaviour, in general, is not under constant and detailed control of careful and accurate hedonic computations. It is product of an unstable and irrational complex of reflex actions, impulses, instincts, habits, customs, fashion and hysteria. For a long time, economists have argued that humans make decisions by obeying laws of rationality. An important goal of homoscience is to elucidate the biological basis of human absenteeism. This goal serves many basic and translational purposes, including achieving a better understanding of absenteeism and cultural problems as well as developing better therapies for a broad array of mental disorders. Absenteeism homoscience is the investigation of the basic homobiological mechanisms underlying absenteeism behaviours. This includes studies of how absenteeism behaviours are mediated by the brain, as well as how absenteeism context modulates the cognitive functions of brain. The present attempt would (perhaps) contribute towards existing scholarship .
