NJSA joined with other business organizations to argue against approval of A3912, a bill that will empower NJ's municipalities and counties to establish minimum wage levels for private employers in their jurisdictions. Click here to download NJSA's position paper on this legislation.
Assembly Bill 1908 imposes an annual cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) on workers' compensation benefit rates for certain disability cases that occurred after 1980. The extra money would be generated by increasing the surcharge employers pay on their premiums to maintain New Jersey's Second Injury Fund for injured workers. The most recent estimated cost after the three year phase-in period for a similar bill in the last legislative session was $58 million. Contact your state Assembly members immediately and ask them to vote "NO" on raising your workers' compensation costs.
