Recent Updates to New Jersey Employment and Billing Laws: What Every Practice Needs to Know

In July, the state of New Jersey enacted two major laws affecting every healthcare practice in the state. On the employment front, a new mandatory Paid Sick Leave Act that requires employers to provide employees with designated “sick leave.” From a financial aspect, a new comprehensive New Jersey Out-of-Network (OON) Consumer Protection, Transparency, Cost Containment and Accountability Act that addresses multiple issues beyond mere balance billing. As no practice is ever 100% in-network and New Jersey’s Paid Sick Leave Act is mandatory for all employers in the state, every practice needs to know how to comply with these laws.
