NJDOL Flier on COVID-19 & Unemployment Benefits

As you may have heard during Governor Murphy’s 2:00 p.m. press conference on March 17, 2020, the State is requesting that all businesses continue to pay their employees. While it is unclear whether it will apply to schools, the Governor explained that there is Federal and state proposed legislation that will provide small and mid-sized businesses with 100 percent compensation for providing two weeks of sick leave to employees, along with tax credits for providing up to three months of Paid Family Leave.

Above and here is a helpful chart regarding different types of leave as they relate to COVID-19 from the New Jersey Department of Labor website.

We encourage you to continue to follow our previous guidance issued earlier today, but will keep you updated as the legislation progresses.
