Download our Paid Family Leave Fact Sheets, which provide an overview of state laws in California, New Jersey, and Rhode Island – the latest in our series on how paid leave impacts U.S. businesses.

These fact sheets include data on the impact of these laws, as well as additional resources for employers, HR professionals, and caregivers:

California: Paid Family Leave

In 2002, California became the first state to provide paid family leave to employees to care for a new child or an ill family member. California’s Paid Family Leave program was expanded in 2016 to increase the wage replacement rate, and again in 2017 to extend job protection to new parents.

New Jersey: Family Leave Insurance

Adopted in 2008, New Jersey’s Family Leave Insurance (NJFLI) extended the existing Temporary Disability Insurance program to provide wage replacement—not a leave entitlement—to workers caring for sick family members, newborn, and newly adopted children. The law was the second paid family and medical leave state insurance program to be enacted.

Rhode Island: Temporary Caregiver Leave Insurance

The Temporary Caregiver Insurance (TCI) in Rhode Island offers a wage replacement insurance program that provides paid parental and medical leave to all private sector employees in Rhode Island.
