New Jersey Paid Sick Leave Law Takes Effect in October

Last Edited:

Soon, workers in New Jersey won't have to choose between getting a day's pay or going to work sick, thanks to a new bill signed by Governor Phil Murphy.

On Wednesday, May 2nd, Murphy signed a new bill into law that will require employers to provide one hour of sick leave to employees for every 30 hours they work.

The signing comes after Murphy's approval to help strengthen the Garden State's equal-pay-for-equal-work legislation as well as increased funding for planned parenthood.

The law will go into effect on Monday, October 29th.
