Governor Murphy signed into law both "New Jersey's Law against Discrimination" and "Earned Sick Leave" in early May. Are you up-to-date on what these laws will mean to your ability to do business in New Jersey? The New Jersey Staffing Alliance is the best resource you can find to ensure you know what these laws mean and how you must comply.
New Jersey's new Equal Pay Law goes into effect on July 1, 2018. Under the new law all protected classes are to be paid at a rate comparable to pay rates for substantially similar work and all state contractors will be required to report to the state detailed information regarding protected classes and compensation. The law leaves much of the details regarding how pay discrimination is determined and quantified to the Courts and the Department of Labor and Workforce Development. NJSA's Legal & Legislative Committee is in constant contact with state regulators to know how staffing firms need to report protected classes and compensation.
New Jersey's new statewide Earned Sick Leave Law goes into effect October 1, 2018. The new law essentially requires all NJ employers to allow their NJ employees to accrue at least 1 hour of earned sick leave for every 30 hours worked, and the employee can use a maximum of 40 hours of earned sick leave in a consecutive 12 month period. Employees can start to use their accrued sick leave after they have been employed more than 119 consecutive calendar days with the employer.
NJSA's Legal & Legislative Committee was successful in limiting the maximum carryover but is now particularly concerned regarding how the staffing industry needs to educate and guide clients on these new laws and their application to temporary staff on assignment.
