Private sector employment showed another notable decline in the month of April, according to a report released by Automatic Data Processing, Inc. on Wednesday, although the decrease in jobs was much smaller than economists had expected.

The report showed that non-farm private employment fell by 491,000 jobs in April following a revised decrease of 708,000 jobs in March. Economists had expected a decrease of 645,000 jobs compared to the loss of 742,000 jobs originally reported for the previous month.
