||Paid Sick Days Bill Passes in Newark, NJ! The Newark Municipal Council unanimously passed a paid sick time law on January 28, 2013. The Newark law, which ABB testified in favor of, is broad: private sector workers employed by businesses with 10 or more employees (and all child care, home health care, and food service workers, regardless of the size of their employer) will be able to earn up to 5 paid sick days a year. Workers employed by businesses with fewer than 10 employees will be able to earn up to 3 paid sick days a year. This is truly a victory for all families in Newark.
