A Crash Course in New Jersey's Paid Sick & Family Leave Laws

14 September 2018 By Barry E. Fields

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.
