LOS ANGELES , November 3, 2011 () – Denver voters rejected a proposal to require employers to offer paid sick leave, a measure that was strongly opposed by local restaurant owners, Nation’s Restaurant News reported Nov. 2.

If adopted, the proposal would have required employers to offer paid sick leave to full and part-time employees, up to a maximum of 72 hours per year at businesses with 10 or more employees and a maximum of 40 hours for staffers at smaller companies.

Opponents said the proposal as written would have done more harm than good for businesses struggling against economic headwinds.
