Elizabeth is the latest New Jersey city to pass a paid sick leave ordinance. The new law that will require private employers to provide sick time to employees was approved by Elizabeth voters on November 3, 2015. The city has not released a copy of the Ordinance, but it is very likely that it will be very similar to the other nine New Jersey municipalities with paid sick leave laws.
It can be anticipated that employees working in the city of Elizabeth will start earning one hour of paid sick time for every 30 hours worked. Employers with 10 or more employees will not be required to provide more than 40 hours of paid sick time per calendar year. Employers with less than 10 employees will not be required to provide more than 24 hour of paid sick time in a calendar year.
