NJ’s Paid Sick Leave Legislation is Bad for Business


Well, the goals of the sick leave
legislation are certainly laudable, but when you really peel back the issue, it
is gonna have a negative impact on small businesses. One of the reasons why it’s gonna have that
negative impact is because many small businesses are gonna have
to pay workers twice under the legislation. They’re gonna have to pay once for the
worker whose out and again for their replacement. The other issues that the legislation
presents are that it imposes numerous recordkeeping requirements on employers and it’s also really gonna disrupt
existing paid time off policies, both in terms of the days that are
offered, and their uses, and then also in
employers trying to police what may be illegitimate uses of the time.
