Earlier this year, HR Legalist posted a blog entry about the New Jersey Earned Sick Leave Law. This new law (full text available here) takes effect on October 29, 2018 and requires most private sector employers in New Jersey to provide paid sick leave to its New Jersey employees. But don’t let this scare you. We’ve got some ghouls—I mean, tools—to help keep employers from getting tangled in this latest web of sick leave laws. The New Jersey Department of Labor (NJDOL) recently issued proposed regulations to implement the new law. The following is a summary of the key regulations:
The NJDOL is accepting comments on the proposed regulations until December 14, 2018. It is likely that the final regulations will not be substantially different from the proposed regulations. HR Legalist will update readers when final regulations are published. In the meantime, Obermayer attorneys are available to assist in ensuring your sick leave and PTO policies are in compliance. Happy Halloween!
