"On ne va pas se mettre en arrêt pour ça." : les arrêts maladie, pratiques, discours et représentations dans les secteurs des musiques actuelles et de l'aide à domicile

Abstract : The purpose of this current doctoral thesis was to investigate sick leave practices and representations, mainly through workers’ discourses and field observation, in the home care and contemporary popular music sectors. The hypothesis is that sick leave is a polysemous, intelligent and moral practice. Polysemous, in the sense that workers give sick leaves various meanings and use them in many different ways: sick leaves protect their health from demanding work environments. They serve as warnings for colleagues and hierarchy, in an attempt to improve collective welfare, to speak out against employer’s hegemony. They can be interpreted as a logical outcome of a given context (mainly poor working conditions and organization), as well as a punishment for the employer or the worker himself. Intelligent, because workers think carefully before they have recourse to sick leave, they assess their ins and outs, analyze the situation, the common practices. They adapt to social norms, at both local and macro-social levels, try when possible to be game changers. Their views and behaviors about sick leaves change over time, they learn from their experience, rethink their positions along their careers (within illness, work, family…), according to the social roles they are expected to endorse. Eventually, sick leaves are a moral practice as workers take into account the consequences of their leave : they behave with « loyalty » towards their colleagues, their clients, their work or their company. They evaluate the legitimacy of sick leaves and use them or not according to this judgment, in the respect or the fight for equity, and the defense of their professional identity and values.
