Fox Sports host Greg Jennings discusses why the Super Bowl can’t be on a Saturday and the spike in gambling for this year’s game.

Super Bowl Sunday is just days away, and chances are many of your coworkers won’t make it into the office Monday morning, a new report suggests.

More than 17 million workers suffering from “Super Bowl Fever” are likely to miss work on the day after Super Bowl LIV, according to a survey conducted by think tank Workforce Institute at Kronos. Kronos conducted an online survey of 1,148 U.S. employees with The Harris Poll.

That’s the highest-ever level of anticipated Super Bowl-related absenteeism since the think tank began tracking “Super Monday” in 2005.

Just over 11 million employees are expected to use their pre-approved time off for Monday following the title game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.

An estimated 4.7 million employees plan to phone in sick, while 1.5 million plan to stay home without any notice, otherwise known as “ghosting” their employers, said Joyce Maroney, executive director of the Workforce Institute at Kronos.

Nearly 8 million employees will wait until the very last minute, when the “Sunday scaries” start to set in, to decide whether to go into work Monday.

Although 40 percent of those with “Super Bowl Fever” say Monday should be considered a national holiday, Maroney says these “unplanned” absences can be “an expensive problem for organizations.”

A 2014 survey conducted by the think tank revealed the total cost of employee absence can reach up to 22 percent of base payroll. That figure includes both direct costs, like employee pay, and indirect costs, like replacement expenses, overtime, and net lost productivity, according to the report.

“Not only productivity takes a measurable hit – so does the morale of managers and coworkers who scramble to fill the gap. And those managers don’t sit idly by when workers bend the rules,” Maroney said.

The game kicks off Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami on Fox.
