On October 1, 2013, absent any extensions, New Jersey’s Security and Financial Empowerment Act (NJ SAFE Act) went into effect. Here are a few questions and answers to help you understand and comply with the NJ SAFE Act.
What does the NJ SAFE Act do? -
It requires employers to grant employees unpaid leave for up to 20 days a year for matters related to domestic violence or a sexually violent offense.
Does the NJ SAFE Act apply to my business? -
The Act applies if you employed 25 or more employees for each working day during each of 20 or more calendar workweeks in the then-current or immediately preceding calendar year. The Act does not specify whether your employees outside of New Jersey count towards the 25, or just those you employ in New Jersey. Until there is clarification, you should err on the side of caution and include all employees everywhere when determining whether you meet the 25-employee threshold.
