      Paid sick days refer to the benefit provided by employers where employees receive compensation for taking time off due to illness or medical appointments. This benefit allows employees to prioritize their health without worrying about loss of income. Generally, employees are entitled to a certain number of paid sick days per year, depending on company policies or labor laws in their respective countries.
