New paid sick leave law expected to soon go into effect

A new law is expected to go into effect in 26 days, requiring most employers across New Jersey to provide sick days.
Gov. Phil Murphy signed the paid sick leave law back in May.
The law, set for Oct. 29, will allow workers to earn one hour of leave for every 30 hours they work.
Companies will also be required to provide a maximum of five paid sick days a year.
According to officials in Trenton, it's the broadest and strongest law of its kind in the U.S.
The law applies to part-time as well as full-time employees.
