Christopher M. Farella, Counsel in the Litigation and Employment, Labor & Workforce Management practices, in the firm’s Newark office, was mentioned in ROI New Jersey, in “Attorneys: Companies Should Modify Their PTO Policies Because of Paid Sick-Leave Law,” by Tom Bergeron.

Following is an excerpt:

The paid sick-leave law: That’s for businesses that use a lot of minimum-wage and hourly employees, right? Wrong.

The paid sick-leave law: That doesn’t concern my company because we already give plenty of paid days off, right? Wrong again.

When New Jersey’s paid sick-leave law goes into effect at the end of the month, many employers may not fully understand just how much they are impacted.

It will be a lot.

So said attorneys ... and Chris Farella of Epstein Becker & Green at a panel discussion sponsored by the New Jersey Civil Justice Institute on Tuesday morning in Florham Park.
