Thanks to the efforts of organized labor and its community allies, statewide earned sick leave was signed into law a few weeks ago by Governor Phil Murphy. This policy ensures that 1.2 million workers in New Jersey, who previously lacked earned sick days, will no longer have to make the immoral choice between a paycheck and their physical or mental health. This notice is meant to provide a more detailed overview of what this policy achieves for working families, and we encourage you to share this information with others who may be able to benefit from this major labor accomplishment.
