The New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development (NJDOL) released on its website the required notice that must be posted and distributed to all New Jersey employees under the New Jersey Paid Sick Leave Law.  Attached is a copy of the notice.

Here are some answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs) about the posting and distribution requirements for the notice:

1. Are employers required to post a notice about the law?

Yes. New Jersey employers must post a notice of employee rights in a conspicuous place accessible to all employees in each of the employer’s workplaces.

2. Can employers post the required notice electronically?

Yes. The proposed regulations state that the required notice may be posted on “an internet site or intranet site” if the employer has such a site “for exclusive use by its employees and to which all employees have access.”

Employers who provide prescription drug coverage to plan participants (employees and dependents) are required to notify those that may be eligible for Medicare whether their prescription drug coverage is “creditable coverage”, which means that the benefits are expected to pay on average as much as the standard Medicare prescription drug coverage.  This Notice must be distributed by October 14.  Please let me know if you need a copy of the Notice in English and/or Spanish.

Additionally, all employers are required to report their plan status to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on an annual basis, within 2 months after your prescription renewal.

New Jersey Enacts
Statewide Paid Sick Leave

On May 2, 2018, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed the Paid Sick Leave Act (Act) into law. The Act will require virtually all employers to provide paid sick leave to employees, effective Oct. 29, 2018. Under the Act:

  • All New Jersey employers must provide paid sick leave to their employees;
  • Employees will accrue one hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours worked, up to 40 hours per year; and
  • Employees must be paid for paid sick leave at the same rate (and with the same benefits) they normally earn.

 This Compliance Bulletin provides an overview of the Act.

The attached Compliance Bulletin is information about the NJ Paid Sick Leave law which will take effect on October 29th.  You may have to change your PTO policy to comply with the new law.

The cost of medical and prescription programs continue to rise at an alarming rate.  If your program is fully insured, you are probably frustrated by the double digit rate increases and the lack of transparency (no claims experience provided) by the insurance carrier.  And if you are self insured, you may have additional claims exposure for stop loss lasers being imposed on certain members and very high increases on your stop loss renewals.
