Abstract

This paper explores HILDA data in order to look at workplace outcomes for women with chronic illness. Literature supports the assertion that women with chronic illness tend to be at a disadvantage when attempting to achieve desirable outcomes at work in order to accommodate their particular life circumstances. This exploratory study on attitudes and outcomes of women with chronic illness shows that there are significant links between their position of disadvantage and their satisfaction with various aspects of their working lives as well as their workforce outcomes.
