January 31st, the New Jersey legislature passed S2528/A3975 – a bill
that expands New
Jersey’s Family Leave Act by increasing the amount of time a family caregiver
can take off work to care for a loved one, increasing the wage replacement a
family caregiver can receive, increasing job protections, and expanding the
definition of family. The bill also increases funding for public
awareness of the law
since only about 1% of eligible individuals have taken advantage of the benefit
since the Family Leave Act was established over a decade ago.
it’s time to say THANK YOU!
applauds those Senators and Assemblypersons who voted YES on expanding the NJ Family Leave Act. Please take a moment to send your legislators a note of
thanks for their commitment to working family caregivers in the Garden State.
