Morristown Paid Sick Leave Ordinance Goes Into Effect


On January 11, 2017, the Town of Morristown Paid Sick Leave Ordinance became effective. Morristown’s paid sick leave rules are virtually identical to a number of other New Jersey towns which have passed similar ordinances. Most importantly, employees working in Morristown have a right to paid sick time off, which they can use for the care and treatment of themselves or a family member. Family members include children, parents, spouses, grandparents, grandchildren, domestic partners or siblings. Employees accrue one (1) hour of paid sick time off for every thirty (30) hours worked. Employees should have started accruing paid sick time as of January 11, 2017 and are eligible to begin using that time on April 11, 2017. If your employees work in Morristown, your company needs to comply with this law.
