We are also informed that the New Jersey Assembly has advanced A 2354, a proposal that will mandate paid sick leave for private sector employees throughout the Garden State.  The initiative comes in the wake of New Jersey’s two largest cities passing their own paid sick leave laws – both Jersey City and Newark have paid sick leave laws on the municipal books, having enacted them in September 2012 and January 2014 respectively.
