Last month on October 29, 2018 the New Jersey Paid Sick Leave Act became effective. In general, this new law requires that all New Jersey employers provide their employees 1 hour of sick leave for every 30 hours worked. This law applies even if you have only 1 employee. The next deadline is tomorrow, November 29,2018. By this date all employers will need to have posted the Department of Labor’s Notice of Employee Rights in a prominent location for all employees to see. Please be sure to fill in the benefit year before posting.
