NEW JERSEY DEPARTMENT OF LABOR AND WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT 
(To be posted in a conspicuous place)  This employer is subject to the  
Family Leave Insurance provisions of the New  Jersey Temporary Disability Benefits Law. 
 
Beginning July 1, 2009, New Jersey law will provide up to six (6) weeks of Family Leave Insurance benefits. Benefits are 
payable to covered employees from either the New Jersey State  Plan or an approved employer-provided private plan to: 
 
•  Bond with a child  during the first 12 months after the child’s birth, if the covered individual or the domestic 
partner or civil union partner of the covered individual, is  a biological parent of the child, or the first 12 months 
after the placement of the child for  adoption with the covered individual. 
 
•  Care for a family member with a serious health condition  supported by a certification provided by a health care 
provider. Claims may be filed for six consecutive weeks, fo r intermittent weeks or for 42 intermittent days during a 
12 month period beginning with the first date of the claim. 
 
Family member means a child, spouse, domestic partne r, civil union partner or parent of a covered  
individual. 
Child means a biological, adopted, or foster child, stepchild  or legal ward of a covered individual, child of a 
domestic partner of the covered individual, or child of a  civil union partner of the covered individual, who is less 
than 19 years of age or is 19 years of age or older but  incapable of self-care because of mental or physical 
impairment.

If an employee is receiving State Plan temporary disability benef its for pregnancy, after the child is born, the Division will 
mail the employee information on how to file  a claim for Family Leave Insurance benefits to bond with the newborn child. 
If a claim is filed to have Family Leave Insurance benefits begin immediately after the employee recovers from her 
pregnancy-related disability, she will be paid at the same week ly benefit amount as she was paid for her pregnancy-related 
disability claim and no waiting period will be required. 
 
Private Plan 
An employer can elect to provide workers with Family Leave  Insurance benefits coverage under a private plan approved by 
the Division of Temporary Disability Insurance. The Division will not approve a private plan requiring employee 
contributions unless a majority of the employees, covered by th e private plan, have agreed to private plan coverage by 
written election. Employers will provide info rmation regarding the private plan and the proper forms to claim benefits to 
employees covered under the private plan.
 
 
Financing of the Program 
This program is financed by employee contributions.  Beginning January 1, 2009, employers are authorized to deduct the 
contributions from employee wages for all employees covered unde r the State Plan.  These deductions must be noted on the 
employee’s pay envelope, paycheck or on some other form of  notice.  The taxable wage base for Family Leave Insurance 
benefits is the same as the taxable wage base for Unem ployment and Temporary Disability Insurance.       
 
Employees covered under an approved private plan will not have contributions deducted from wages for Family Leave 
Insurance benefits coverage unless a majority of the worker s consent to contribute to the approved private plan. If 
employees consent to contribute to the private plan, the cont ributions cannot exceed those paid by workers covered under
