TRENTON – Legislation to ensure unemployed New Jerseyans can understand and obtain their jobless benefits was signed into law Friday.
The law (A-3794) requires that the benefit instructions provided by each employer to a worker at the time the worker becomes unemployed include information on the time sensitivity of filing a claim for unemployment benefits.
“Ensuring a worker who finds themselves turning to unemployment benefits understands the importance of a timely benefits filing is commonsense,” said Asm. Peter J. Barnes III (D-Middlesex). “In these tough economic times, we don’t want to see anyone lose benefits because rules were unclear.”
