Understanding and Administering Family Leave Insurance

Time:9:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Location:Holiday Inn, Princeton
Sponsored by:EANJ

Effective January 1, 2009, New Jersey will become the third state to have mandatory Family Leave Insurance (FLI). The FLI law enables eligible employees to collect up to six-weeks of insurance when out of work to care for a newborn, newly adopted child, or an ill family member.  Employees will be able to collect such insurance effective July 1, 2009.

Although the FLI law is commonly referred to as a “leave law” it would not require employers to grant a leave of absence or to keep a job open with a right to guaranteed reinstatement, although FLI can be collected during the time an employee is on a leave of absence under the federal Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) or the New Jersey Family Leave Act.

This seminar provides an overview of FLI, including:

  • What employers are covered;
  • Notification requirements;
  • Employee eligibility;
  • Reasons for receiving FLI;
  • The use of paid time off;
  • Calculating time off; and
  • Wrongful Termination liability
