    Where an employee lives doesn't matter - it's where the employee works that is looked at. Here though we have an employee working in Fl. for a NJ employer.

    Re the NJ SDI plan (temporary disability ins.) -- Most workers whose employment is covered by the New Jersey Unemployment Compensation Law are also protected by a mandatory disability insurance system. (see link below)

    The employee must also pay into the plan -- Effective January 1, 2012, each worker must contribute at a rate of two tenths of one percent on the first $30,300 of covered wages paid by an employer in a calendar year. (see link below)

    "Generally" only employees working in NJ are covered under NJ SDI. You have to look at whether she is covered under NJ UC law & whether she pays into the plan.

    I think she would be covered. She will definitely be covered by the state disability plan. From their FAQ's:

    Do I have to live in New Jersey to receive temporary disability benefits?
    No. Where you live has no bearing on whether you can receive disability benefits. The most important eligibility requirement is that you worked for a New Jersey covered employer.

    It covers all employees of all private and governmental employers subject to the New Jersey Unemployment Compensation Law.

    You can contact the NJ Dept. of Labor & Workforce Development for questions regarding NJPFL.

    add'l. info: PFL ins. - 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 under the State Plan.

    (Has she had contributions deducted from her wages?)

    Njpfl

    Yes I am referring to NJPFL. I have read all the material that you have provided, and thank you. I just do not see anywhere if they do in fact cover employees that live in another state. I would assume so but I would like to know for sure. Since in these times there are many telecommuters as well as people traveling across state boarders to work, that the state laws where they work would apply in these cases.

    I'm not sure if you're asking about NJFLA or NJPFL. (I assume probably PFL since you said ins. program)

    1. Which employers are covered by the NJFLA?

    All employers with 50 or more employees anywhere worldwide must comply with the NJFLA for their New Jersey employees.


    2. Which employees are eligible for leave under the NJFLA?

    To be eligible for family leave under the NJFLA, an employee must be employed in New Jersey by a covered employer. The employee also must have been employed for at least twelve (12) months for the employer, and must have worked 1,000 base hours in the preceding twelve (12) months.

    2. Who is covered for Family Leave Insurance benefits?
    Employees of all private and governmental employers subject to the New Jersey Unemployment Compensation Law are covered.

    http://lwd.state.nj.us/labor/fli/fliindex.html (This link will give you add'l. info on PFL (Family Leave Ins.)

    Does she qualify for federal FMLA? It's unpaid though as is NJFLA.

    PS - just for your info, here is a link for you re NJ SDI (state disability ins.) http://lwd.dol.state.nj.us/labor/for...di/WPR-117.pdf

  • Out of state employee qualify for New Jersey Family Leave Insurance New Jersey

    I own a New Jersey business and employee a woman in Florida. She receives payroll checks through our New Jersey payroll company. I would like to know if she would qualify for the Family Leave Insurance program of New Jersey for her maternity leave. I have read a few things and haven't found a definite answer. On the state site it states that "anyone employed by a company in New Jersey".
    Does anyone know any facts about this? Thank you
