COVID-19: New Jersey Paid Benefits for Employees

The New Jersey Department of Labor has published a table outlining various COVID-19 scenarios that employees may find themselves in at this precarious time, together with an indication of which paid benefits employees may qualify for if they are not being paid by their employer or otherwise the recipient of more generous employer policies.  The paid benefits include Earned Sick Leave, Unemployment Insurance, Temporary Disability/Family Leave Insurance, and Workers’ Compensation.  The table is available here.  Keep in mind that variables will affect employee eligibility, and benefit entitlement is made on a case-by-case basis.
