As we have previously blogged, the New Jersey Earned Sick Leave law goes into effect on October 29, 2018. In connection with implementation of the law, the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development has issued a “Notice of Employee Rights.” The Notice is available here.
The Notice must be provided to new employees when they begin employment and to all existing employees by November 29, 2018. Employers must also post this notice in a conspicuous and accessible place at all work sites and also must give copies to employees on request. Employers should note that the Department of Labor is in the process of translating the Notice into ten (10) additional languages and requires that the Notice be given in English, Spanish or any other language for which notifications have been provided and which is the first language of a majority of the workforce.
