Last week New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed A1827 (New Jersey Paid Sick Leave Act) into law. New Jersey now joins nine other states and the District of Columbia that have enacted paid sick leave to provide earned compensation for workers who miss work due to illness or needing to take care of a sick loved one.  The law allows workers to accrue one hour of earned sick leave for every 30 hours worked, capped at a maximum of 40 hours each year.

Fortunately, the paid sick leave law does not take effect for 6 months, so you have time to figure out the impact on your company and how these benefits will operate with your current sick leave.

If you missed the first communication about this early last week, attached and below is information covering many details of the law.
