On May 11, 2012, another bill (A2866) was introduced seeking to amend the New Jersey Family Leave Act to provide covered employees up to 48 hours of additional leave time (in increments as short as two hours) during any 12-month period. Covered employees may use this additional leave time to attend or participate in their child’s school functions or activities (such as theatrical productions, sporting events, classroom observations, parent-teacher conferences, and other meetings concerning the employee’s child) or to accompany the child to routine medical or dental appointments. In January 2012, the Assembly introduced a bill (A1421) that would provide for similar leave, but much less – only up to eight hours per year. (For a discussion of this bill, see the March 2012 issue of the New Jersey eAuthority.)
