    At any given moment, 10.7% of US workforce is out of work on FMLA. Since it was enacted in 1993 FMLA has been used over 100 million times. Complicating it further are the various NJ leave laws, i.e. NJ Family Leave Act, the NJ Safe Act, the NJ Earned Sick Leave Law and the NJ Family Leave Insurance -- a tangled web of leave issue nightmares. In addition, employers must also consider the impact of Worker's Compensation, Temporary Disability Benefits and related benefit issues.  Join us  and gain a practical understanding enabling you to safely navigate this legal minefield.
