Printer-friendly version

The New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development has published three new FAQs addressing COVID-related worker protections including:
Q: I refuse to receive an employer-mandated vaccine or refuse testing protocols.  Am I eligible for Unemployment benefits if I quite or get fired?
A: If you are considering not complying with a mandated COVID-19 vaccine or testing requirement, be aware that you are unlikely to be eligible for Unemployment benefits if you are fired or quit for that reason. Cases are examined on an individual basis, and eligibility is determined in accordance with the law.
