by workplace bullying (OR 1.77; 95 % CI 1.50–2.12) and unwanted sexual attention (OR 1.55; 95 % CI 1.06–2.29). Together, disturbed sleep and difficulties awakening mediated 12.8 % (95 % CI 8.1–19.8) of the association between bullying and long-term sickness absence, and 8.5 % (95 % CI −0.45 to 37.1) of the association between unwanted sexual attention and long-term sickness absence in the fully adjusted model. Neither disturbed sleep nor difficulties awakening moderated these associations. Conclusion As expected, bullying and unwanted sexual attention were prospectively associated with long-term sickness absence.Only a small part of this association was mediated by poor sleep.
