Legal Alert: New Jersey New Equal Pay and Paid Sick Leave Laws

Action Required: See Details Below

New Jersey Governor Murphy has approved two new laws that will dramatically impact the way New Jersey employers address compensation systems and paid sick leave policies.

Both laws apply to all nonprofits and neither law contains a “small employer” exception.

Pro Bono Partnership and the Jackson Lewis law firm have prepared two articles for nonprofits that explain the new laws: New Jersey’s Diane B. Allen Equal Pay Act (which goes into effect on July 1) and New Jersey Paid Sick Leave Act (which goes into effect on October 29).

If you have any questions regarding the new laws, contact Christine Michelle Duffy, Esq., in the New Jersey office of Pro Bono Partnership, at 973-240-6955 ext. 303.
