Lack Of Paid Sick Leave May Cause Mental Distress For Ill Workers

HealthDay (9/22, Preidt) reported, “Lack of paid sick leave can cause mental distress for workers when they’re ill because they’re afraid of losing wages or their jobs,” researchers concluded after studying “nearly 18,000 workers, ages 18-64,” 40 percent of which had no paid sick leave. The findings were published online in the American Journal of Orthopsychiatry.
