On Monday the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development published proposed new rules implementing P.L. 2018, c. 10, which requires all employers, including local governments, to provide employees with earned sick leave. As you should already be aware, P.L. 2018, c.10, takes effect October 29, 2018, and on that date, all affected employers are required to provide employees one hour of earned sick leave for every 30 hours worked.

The proposed new rules include sections addressing violations, administrative penalties and fees, interest, hearings, record keeping procedures, and more. A public hearing on these rules is scheduled for November 13, 2018, and written comments must be submitted by December 14, 2018.
