(WHAS11) -- If you get paid sick leave at your job, you may be healthier.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention finds that you are 28 percent less likely to suffer non-fatal work-related injuries.

They say this is because sick or stressed workers who continue on the job risk suffering additional illness or workplace injury.

The study finds people without paid sick leave keep working for fear of losing income.
