Success Stories » NJ Paid Family Leave Act
Thank you, New Jersey, for becoming the third state to adopt paid leave!
On May 2, 2008, New Jersey became the third state to enact a paid family leave law, the NJ Paid Family Leave Act. We congratulate our local partners, the New Jersey Time to Care coalition, on this historic victory.
On the federal level, the National Partnership's fight for paid leave was featured on Good Morning America. The live segment (with several of our staff members in attendance) focused on the glaring need for paid family leave and included a powerful story about one mom struggling to make ends meet.
