Temporary Disability Insurance Requirements by State

Author: Tracy Morley, XpertHR Legal Editor

Temporary (or short-term) disability insurance (TDI) provides income protection to employees who cannot work due to a nonwork-related illness or injury. Employers in California, Hawaii, New Jersey, New York and Rhode Island are required to provide temporary disability insurance to workers. Some state (and local) laws may also provide family leave benefits. These laws cover employees who work in these jurisdictions, regardless of the location of the employer's headquarters.

The following chart helps employers understand each state's temporary disability and/or paid family leave insurance requirements. States that have none are marked N/A.
