Dear Supporter:

No one should have to choose between a paycheck and a dying parent, a newborn child or another family member in need.

Support Paid Family Leave for All.

Sign the petition today!

New Jersey's children and families need a stronger paid family leave program. The NJ Family Leave Insurance program, adopted in 2009, was a great start. But too many working people are unable to access it.

Legislation (S2528 / A3975) that would greatly improve Paid Family Leave is pending in the NJ Legislature. The bill would:

  • Increase the paid leave amount to more closely match a worker's actual wages,
  • Ensure workers are eligible to use the program to care for a wide range of family members,
  • Expand the available time from 6 to 12 weeks of paid leave to provide care and
  • Provide job protection for more workers who take time off.  

We are asking you to help ensure this legislation gets to the Governor’s desk without further delay! Join the NJ Time to Care Coalition’s Paid Family Leave for All Campaign by signing their letter urging the Legislature to act to improve NJ's Paid Family Leave Program. Sign the petition today!

For more information on the legislation, visit the NJ Time to Care Coalition page.
