Re:       Guide to Medical Leave Laws

Dear Mayor:

Recently the League has received more than a few calls regarding the different medical leave laws that might apply to local governments; specifically, the Federal Medical Leave Act, New Jersey Family Leave Insurance, and New Jersey Medical Leave.

The specifics of each, and their interplay with each other, have been a source of confusion for local government leaders.

Recently League Staff Attorney Matthew Weng has prepared a document that outlines the basic requirements of each and what effect each type of leave has on the others.  Please review this document with your personnel professionals.

You can find the document here:

If you have any questions or require further information, please do not hesitate to contact Matthew Weng at 609-695-3481 ext 137, or at

Very truly yours,

William G. Dressel, Jr.
Executive Director
