More Employees to Qualify for Time Off Work under NJ’s Expanded Leave Laws
Come July 1, a lot more people are going to be eligible for paid family leave program, and it’s a good bet some of them are going to be taking it. That’s when many of the provisions of the law Gov. Phil Murphy signed in February expanding paid family leave and some of the state’s other leave laws take effect.
In addition to increasing paid family leave from six weeks to 12 for eligible employees it also expanded who counts as a family members, the number of businesses that have to comply with the law and numerous changes to how the state’s leave laws work.
“I hope you have taken a look at your policies and changed the things that needed to change,” said attorney Susan Hodges of Parker McCay. She was in Mount Laurel this morning explaining the changes to businesses as part of NJBIA’s Hot Topics: Changes in Employment Law program. “If you haven’t yet changed them, even if you’re doing the right things, you still need to change your written policies.”
