Our New Year's Resolution: Keeping You Informed

The year 2020 will bring several changes to benefit your workers. Stay informed to help your employees understand what's new.

To support these positive changes, program contributions are increasing for many New Jersey workers.

All New Jersey employees contribute to the cost of Temporary Disability and Family Leave Insurance through a salary deduction that you are responsible for listing on their paystubs. This salary deduction continues until their gross earnings reach a specific amount in a year, known as the wage cap. After the wage cap is met, salary deductions are no longer taken for the remainder of the year. 

As of January 1, 2020, the employee wage cap is increasing from $34,400 to $134,900 per year.
