Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto today said he would introduce legislation to expand New Jersey’s paid family leave program, increasing both the length of paid time off available and the amount of benefits that participants receive.
NJBIA issued a statement saying it is concerned about the impact that proposal will have on member companies, most of which are small businesses with fewer than 50 employees. “We look forward to participating in discussions with the Assembly and thank the speaker for including us in those deliberations,” the statement said.
