Lampitt & Mukherji Earned Sick Leave Bill Released by Assembly Committee
Bill Would Make N.J. 3rd State to Require Earned Sick Leave(TRENTON) - Legislation Assembly Democrats Pamela Lampitt and Raj Mukherji sponsored to require employers to provide earned sick leave to workers in the state was released Monday by the Assembly Labor Committee.
The bill (A-2354) would allow workers to accrue one hour of earned sick leave for every 30 hours worked.
New Jersey would follow Connecticut and California as states to pass legislation requiring employers to allow workers to earn paid sick leave.
"Workers should not have to choose between caring for their health and keeping their paychecks or jobs," said Lampitt (D-Camden/Burlington). "Guaranteeing workers the ability to earn paid sick days would help ensure workers do not have to choose between their health and their economic security. New Jersey should be a leader in the fight for this common sense, pro-worker policy."
