NEW YORK - The City Council has put its stamp of approval on a bill giving more than 1 million workers paid sick leave.
The new law will give employees from businesses with at least 20 workers up to five paid sick days each year starting in April.
All other smaller businesses will have to provide five unpaid sick days per year, preventing workers from being terminated for using those days.
