Can my employer cut off my temporary disability benefits because I am working a part-time job?

The answer depends upon the circumstances. New Jersey law requires the payment of temporary disability benefits for days or fractions of days an employee is not able to work. These benefits end when the employee is able to resume work. The law does not say resume work at the job where the injury occurred.

An employer may argue that temporary disability benefits should cease if the employee returns to work anywhere. In practice, it appears the employer will not stop benefits unless the employee is working a substantial number of hours, 20 or 30 hours, in a part-time or second job.
