Gov. Phil Murphy sits for a New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) innovation, equity and growth program briefing on Sept. 26, 2023, in Trenton.About half of New Jersey workers know they can take paid sick leave from their jobs, but fewer than half know about paid family leave, at least by the name of the law, according to a recent study put out by Rutgers University. Nonetheless, seven in 10 respondents were aware paid sick leave exists in some form, and one in two were aware of the state’s paid family leave. In summer 2021, 71% of respondents were aware they had paid sick leave, 73% in fall 2021 and 74% in spring 2021 and fall 2020. The state Department of Labor asked for the report by the university’s Heldrich Center for Workforce Development, and it’s based on data from 2020 to 2022.
