Update on NJ Paid Family Leave Legislation
Last month, Governor Christie conditionally vetoed legislation (S3085/A4927) that would expand and improve New Jersey’s paid family leave program. If passed, the bill would have increased the amount of leave time from six to 12 weeks as well as the weekly benefit cap and expanded eligibility to benefits for a wider range of care-taking behavior. In his veto, the Governor deleted all sections of the bill except the section which requires the Department of Labor and Workforce Development to educate the public and employers about the program.
