To achieve organisational goals and objectives, presenteeism and employee performance are among the most crucial human resource phenomena to consider. However, since sickness presentee ism is the most common type ofpresenteeism and receives less attention than voluntary and involuntary p resenteeism, there is a knowledge gap regarding the specific kind ofp resenteeism with the most significant influence. To this end, this study fo cused on how presenteeism influences employees'performance at the Lagos State Ministry of Health in Nigeria. Data from 362 employees at the Lagos State Ministry of Health in Nigeria was gathered using a cross-sectional survey research design. A structured Standard Presenteeism Scale (SPS), and an Individual Work Performance Questionnaire (IWPQ) were the instruments used for data collection. The Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) 25.0 version was used to analyse the data using regression analysis. According to the results, voluntary p resenteeism has an insignificant negative influence on employees' performance (fJ = - 0.027, S.E =0.087, t-ea/c.= -0.419, p-value = 0.676, p>0.05). In comparison, involuntary presenteeism significantly negatively influences employees' performance (fJ = -0.148, S.E = 0.090, tea/ c.= -2.331, p-value = 0.020, p<0.05). The results show that between the two presenteeism variables, involuntary presenteeism has a more negative influence on employee performance than voluntary presenteeism. These findings imply that presenteeism, regardless of the form , negatively influences employees ' performance. Also, the organisation must avoid the conditions that encourage presenteeism because it serves no useful purpose.
