We have been asked a ton of questions about the new NJ Sick Leave program, especially this most-asked question: when must the employer provide employees with the notice of employee rights?
The answer is:
Each employer shall provide each employee a written copy of the notification:
1. Not later than 30 days after the form of the notification is issued by the Commissioner,
2. At the time of the employee’s hiring, if the employee is hired after the issuance of the
notification by the Commissioner (9-1-18) ; and
3. Upon the first request of an employee.
