This morning, a divided Assembly Budget Committee voted in favor of A2354, which would require New Jersey employers to provide employees with paid sick leave. The Assembly may now schedule the bill for a floor vote.
NJCJI is part of a coalition of pro-business entities opposing A2354. While other opponents have spoken out against the broader implications this bill will have on the state’s economy, NJCJI is focused on the hidden liability risks this bill poses. The Star-Ledger has published an opinion piece by NJCJI President Marcus Rayner that outlines our concerns.
We urge you to read Rayner’s op-ed, then forward it on to your Assembly members. Let the Assembly know that when it comes to the liability risk included in the paid leave legislation, the cure is worse than the disease.
