Paid Family Leave Begins on New Year's Day

Printer-friendly version

As of January 1st, every employer in New Jersey, regardless of size, must provide family leave insurance to its employees.  A mandatory payroll tax permits eligible employees to receive family leave insurance when off from work to bond with a new baby or care for ill family members.   Starting July 1st, insurance can be received one day or one week at a time. Guaranteed job reinstatement will depend on whether other laws apply.
