You should not include hours for which an employee did not work such as vacation, sick leave, holidays, etc. (even if such hours were paid). If actual hours worked are not available for employees paid on commission, by salary, or by the mile, etc., hours worked may be estimated on the basis of scheduled hours or 8 hours per workday.

This increase is largely attributed to an increase in COVID-19 illnesses in the health care industry, which had an average DART rate of 1.1 and 1.0 in 2018 and 2019, respectively (versus 3.0 in 2020).
