  • So confused about NJ Maternity Leave Rights New Jersey

    I'm confused about maternity leave benefits in NJ. I would like to take 4 weeks prior to due date and 6 weeks after on short term disability and Federal FMLA, and then another 6 on NJ FLA with NJ FLI (paid). Is this possible? what do I have to do to get this approved? Please let me know if I can give any further info to help.

    You might want to review these links re the federal FMLA, NJ FMLA (NJFLA) & the Paid Family Leave Act.

    federal FMLA - - job protection - unpaid leave

    NJ Fam. Leave act (NJFLA) - job protection - unpaid leave

    NJ Paid Fam. Leave Act - employees may take up to 6 wks. of pd. family leave at any time within one year of the birth or adoption of a child, etc. (see link) - no job protection but paid leave

    questions & answers re above pd. fam. leave -

    N J also has a state disability income plan to get pd. while off on unpd. disability leave. This is NOT leave but pay/income while you are on leave - it gives you no add'l. leave time.
