I just had a baby and am on NJ disability now. I see online that I can continue my disability and take my family leave without having another waiting week. But if I only use 2 weeks of my family leave now. Can I take the remaining weeks during the year (like for sukkos and Pesach for example). Basically my question is....do I sacrifice the remaining weeks of family leave by going back to work or can I still get those paid weeks at any point during the year. I saw somewhere that I can even take one day at a time ( paid day for a child sick at home) Anyone with experience or advice please advise.
My advice is, only you know if you can handle going back to work so soon. Only you know how stressful your job is. You know if your boss is flexible enough to allow you time off/make up time if your kid is sick or for holidays.
Gonna repeat.. only you know if you can handle going back to work so fast. Really think about it. Don't just jump back in for days off later if it will hurt you now
