Family Leave Act

The New Jersey Family Leave Act (FLA) is available for unpaid time off every two years (provided you qualify by working the minimum number of hours in the previous calendar year to qualify) for the care of an immediate family member for up to 12 weeks (60 work days over a 90 day period).  There is a separate application for NJ Paid Family Leave Insurance – which you are all eligible to file for and collect for up to six weeks while on unpaid, FLA time.  For more information, see the fact sheet link below and contact us with questions.
