Pressure Grows For Statewide Paid Sick Leave In NJ, Law360 ft. Anna Maria Tejada
Anna Maria Tejada, partner and Director of the New Jersey Labor & Employment Group, was quoted in an article published by Law360 on August 29, 2014. The article, titled “Pressure Grows For Statewide Paid Sick Leave In NJ,” points out that two of the state’s major cities, Newark and Jersey City, already have paid sick leave requirements, and six additional municipalities may soon be following. Anna Maria comments that this would “give state lawmakers more momentum to try to pass a statewide policy for a number of reasons.” “They’re going to say it’s for worker rights, but on the other hand, it probably would give employers more of an opportunity to negotiate the terms of that bill or lobby for what is most appropriate from a business standpoint,” she added.
