Newark’s Paid Sick Leave Ordinance In Effect


The City of Newark’s paid sick leave ordinance took effect this past Saturday, June 21, 2014.  As we previously posted on April 1, 2014, the City of Newark passed an ordinance mandating certain employers to provide paid sick leave to their employees.  Employers are required to notify employees of their rights by providing individual written notice to employees and posting a notice of rights in the workplace, although the City has not yet issued a model notice.

For more information about the ordinance, refer to Newark’s webpage or contact Connell Foley’s labor and employment law attorneys.
