Universal Citation: NJ Rev Stat § 43:21-33 (2018)

Section: 43:21-33: Election by employees; deduction of contributions

If employees are to be required to contribute toward the cost of benefits under a private plan, such plan shall not become effective unless prior to the effective date a majority of the employees in the class or classes to be covered thereby have agreed thereto by written election. In such event, the employer may during the continuance of the approved private plan collect the required contributions thereto by deduction from the wages paid to covered individuals under such plan, which deduction may be combined with that deduction required by Revised Statutes, section 43:21-7(d)(1) if reasonable notice is given covered individuals concerning such combined deduction by the employer; provided, that if any employer fails to deduct the contributions of any of his employees at the time their wages are paid, or fails to make a deduction therefor at the time wages are paid for the next succeeding payroll period, he may not thereafter collect a contribution with respect to such wages previously paid.

A covered individual shall not be entitled to any benefits from the State disability benefits fund with respect to any period of disability commencing while he is covered under an approved private plan.
