Quijano Introduces Bill to Make NJ's Family Leave Program More Accessible & Affordable to More Working Families

Bill Calls for Expanded Leave Time, Higher Compensation, More Family Member Coverage, Increased Job Protections & Greater Program Promotion

Assemblywoman Annette Quijano (D-Union) has introduced a bill to expand New Jersey's paid leave program and make it more accessible and affordable to more New Jerseyans.

The bill (A-3975) would expand leave times, provide higher compensation to those taking leave, cover more family members, improve job protections and boost awareness of the program.

"Many workers can't afford to take family leave because of its low wage replacement rates, or choose not to out of fear of being retaliated against if they do. In some cases, they are unaware that this is even an option," said Quijano. "The revisions in this bill would help working families who need to take time off work to bond and care for a new child, or to care for a family member who is sick or is recovering from a violent ordeal to do so without jeopardizing their financial security."
