NJ - Paid Family Leave (2008)
Bill would expand the state's Temporary Disability Insurance (TDI) program to cover all workers who take leave to care for a seriously ill family member, including a child, spouse, domestic partner or parent, or to bond with a newly born or adopted child. Workers would be able to receive up to two-thirds of their normal paycheck (capped at $524 a week) for up to 6 weeks over a 12 month period. The program would be funded through a small payroll deduction ranging from 34 cents a week for minimum wage workers up to 64 cents for anyone making over $27,700 a year.
