Earned Sick Leave

Earned Sick Leave (ESL) is another type of time off that can be used for illness-related absences. We’ve designed our ESL plan to be in line with the New Jersey state law signed by Governor Murphy.

Most ESL requests will require team members to draw the first three days from PTO before moving to an ESL bank. To request immediate (or “Day 1”) use of ESL for one of the reasons outlined in the New Jersey state law, please complete this ESL “Day 1” Consideration Request Form and submit it to your local Occupational Health Team.
