What is the Bradford Factor used for?

The Bradford Factor is used by some employers to keep a check on how many sick days their employees are taking. It calculates a score for each employee based on how many days off they take, and how many separate spells of absence those days are spread over. Different employers may have different trigger points which, once reached, trigger different forms of action.
