Morristown, New Jersey, Paid Sick Leave Ordinance Effective 2017

  • September 28, 2016

Morristown, New Jersey, Mayor Timothy P. Dougherty has signed an Executive Order (No. 16-01) delaying the effective date of Morristown’s Paid Sick Leave Ordinance, O-35-2016, from “upon passage and publication” to January 11, 2017.

The Mayor announced the Executive Order on September 27, 2016, explaining that the time is needed to finalize required posters and to provide employer education, among other things. Other municipal paid sick leave ordinances generally included a 120-day period before the effective date.

Employers should continue plans to comply with the Ordinance’s requirements. (See our article for details, Morristown, New Jersey, Passes Paid Sick Leave Ordinance.)
