Governor Murphy signs paid sick leave legislation
On May 2, 2018, Governor Phil Murphy signed into law A-1827/S-2171, the paid sick leave legislation. Governor Murphy made paid sick leave a core issue on his gubernatorial campaign trail. New Jersey is now the 10th state to have such a law on the books and one of the most expansive paid sick leave programs in the nation. It pre-empts all municipal ordinances (currently 13 NJ municipalities have their own ordinances related to paid leave) so that businesses will only have to follow one uniform statewide law.
