The New Jersey Family Leave Act The New Jersey Family Leave Act entitles certain employees to take up to 12 weeks of family lea\ ve in a 24-month period without losing their jobs. With some exceptions, employers must provide this type of leave if: • The EMPLOYER has at least 50 employees (or at least 30 employees as of June 30, \ 2019), or is a government entity, regardless of size. • The EMPLOYEE has worked for that employer for at least one year, and has worked at least 1,000 hours during the last 12 months. • The LEAVE OF ABSENCE is being taken to care for or bond with a child within 1 y\ ear of the child’s birth or placement for adoption or foster care, OR to care for a family \ member, or someone who is the “equivalent” of family, who has a serious health condition. Note that the New Jersey Family Leave Act does not provide leave for the employee’s own health condition. Employees may be eligible for additional leave under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act. Except when emergent circumstances require shorter notice, the employee \ must give the employer the following notice before taking Family Leave: • For intermittent leave, at least 15 days’ notice; • For consecutive leave to care for a newborn or a child placed for foster \ care or adoption, at least 30 days’ notice; and • For consecutive leave to care for a family member with a serious health c\ ondition, notice “in a reasonable and practicable manner.” • In emergent circumstances, the employee should give the employer as\ much notice as possible. To ensure that the employee meets the eligibility requirements, the emplo\ yer may require the employee to provide a certification from a health care provider regarding the family\ member’s serious health condition, the date of a newborn’s birth or the date of placement for adoption or foster care. rev.4.5.19 South Shore Regional Office 1325 Boardwalk T Atlantic City Phone: \(609\) 441-3100 F Southern Regional Office 5 Executive Campus Suite 107 Cherry Hill, NJ 08034 Phone: \(856\) 486-4080 F Northern Regional Office 31 Clinton Street Newark, NJ 07102 Phone: \(973\) 648-2700 F Central Regional Office 140 East F P T Phone: \(609\) 292-4605 F T visit www.NJCivilRights.gov or contact one of the regional offices listed below: State regulations require all employers covered by the New Jersey Family Leave Act to display this official poster in places easily visible to all employee\ s.
