  • On May 2, 2018, Governor Murphy signed The Earned Sick and Safe Days Act, which enables employees to accrue paid sick time. Under the Act, one of the most expansive paid sick leave programs in the nation, an employee will earn 1 hour of sick time for every 30 hours worked, with a cap at 40 hours. The Act will impact many employers in New Jersey who are already adjusting to other recent employee-friendly bills working their way through the legislature.
