Course Description

Time 50 minutes
Difficulty Beginner

Since January 2014, nine municipalities in New Jersey have enacted paid sick leave ordinances and the trend continues to grow.  These laws generally require private employers, regardless of size, to provide paid sick leave to their employees once they work a certain number of hours.  Join Littler Mendelson partner Stacey Adams for a discussion of how these laws will impact your business; what you need to know about accrual, use and carry-over of paid sick leave; what happens to accrued leave at termination; what you need to do to bring your business into compliance; and many other aspects of these laws.  Also, learn about the possibility of paid sick leave being expanded at the state and federal level, and challenges that have been asserted to these laws.

 

Learning Objectives:

I.    Understand the requirements of NJ paid sick leave laws

II.   Summarize the accrual and use of sick days

III.  Identify the possible of expansion of paid sick leave
