Paid Sick Leave

Did you know that you can use paid sick time off from work to get tested or vaccinated for COVID-19? Most New Jersey employees have the right to PAID earned sick leave, up to 40 hours per year from their employers. This includes most full-time, part-time and temporary employees, migrant or seasonal employees and undocumented employees. Your employer cannot retaliate against you for using your earned time off from work.
