Employees will continue to receive up to 85% of their average weekly wage. However, the maximum weekly benefit is increased from $903 to $993.
The contribution rate decreased from 0.47% to 0.14% for TDI and from 0.28% to 0.14% for FLI. The employee taxable base for both programs will be $151,900 which means the maximum employee contribution will be $212.66 for each program ($425.32 total). The taxable wage base for employers increased from $36,200 to $39,800. Employees contribute to the cost of Family Leave Insurance. Both employers and employees contribute to the cost of Temporary Disability Insurance.

New Jersey Family Leave Act (NJ FLA)
Update 8/16/22: details of the NJFLA are required to be provided to employees on a yearly basis via a specific notice. See the “Notice Requirements” section below for a link to the notice that needs to be provided to employees. Employers can provide the notice to employees in a number of ways, such as including it as a paycheck insert, providing it to new hires, attaching it to an employee manual or policy handbook, as a flyer distributed at an employee meeting, by email; and via an internet or intranet site, provided that all employees have access, and the employer customarily posts notices to affected employees or other affected individuals on the site. The Larkin Company recommends simply including the notice within your handbook.
