About NJFLA & FMLA Laws
The Family Medical Leave Act ("FMLA") and the New Jersey Family Leave Act ("NJFLA") are complex laws that can be easily mishandled leaving an employee to make the impossible choice between caring for their family member's (or their own) medical condition or having a job (and the needed benefits of that job). Nobody should have to make that choice. If used correctly, these laws may be able to provide New Jersey employees with needed time off from work without fear of being terminated. For more information on these laws, see Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and State of New Jersey Department of Law & Public Safety Division on Civil Rights.
