New Jersey’s new Paid Sick Leave Act was passed earlier this month (May, 2018). This law will affect just about every private employer and employee in New Jersey! It  becomes effective on October 29, 2018.

What employers are covered? There is no exemption for employer size. All NJ employers must provide sick leave benefits except public employers that are otherwise required to provide sick leave benefits.

What employees are covered?  All NJ employees working “for compensation” are covered except employees in the construction industry employed under a collective bargaining agreement, per diem healthcare employees and public employees who already have sick leave benefits.
