A Basic Workplace Standard All New Jerseyans Deserve
New Jersey should guarantee a minimum standard of earned sick days for all workers. No one should have to choose between caring for themselves and loved ones and getting a paycheck!
Those most in need of earned sick days are the least likely to have them.
Guaranteed earned sick days for all would promote a healthier workforce, healthier businesses and a healthier New Jersey.
Earned sick days will allow workers to care for their loved ones when they are sick
Providing earned sick days to all New Jersey workers is the right thing to do. It is also the smart thing to do. Businesses that provide earned sick days to workers to care for their own or a loved ones illness benefit from increased commitment and productivity – a win win situation for all!
