New: NJ Family Leave Insurance Benefits

This new policy provides information about employee eligibility for family leave benefits, administered by the Division of Temporary Disability Insurance, the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development. Benefits are available to employees taking time off to care for a child, spouse, partner in a civil union, registered domestic partner, or parent with a serious health condition, or to bond with a newly born or adopted child.

These benefits are financed solely through employee contributions to the state. The state is responsible for determining if an associate is eligible for such benefits. There generally is a waiting period during which time no family leave benefits are available. The Division of Temporary Disability Insurance can provide additional information about any applicable waiting period.
