Senate's Proposed Increase in Penalties for Failure to Pay Wages
The Senate is considering a new legislative proposal (S-1396) that would expand the legal forums where individuals may pursue wage claims and also would make the consequences more severe, both in terms of financial expense and also adding new criminal penalties to the civil penalties.

The original bill was replaced last week during the Senate Labor Committee hearing and, instead of postponing committee consideration to a later date to allow the public to review and comment on it, the democrats on the committee voted to support and release the substitute bill.  The bill has now been referred to the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee so there will still a committee hearing prior to being voted on by the Senate.  Currently there is not a companion bill in the Assembly but that could change rather quickly.

NJSA quickly drafted a Position Paper on the original proposal but it is no longer relevant due to the many changes that were added to the substitute bill.  As soon as a revised Position Paper has been prepared and approved, NJSA's Legislative Committee will distribute it to NJSA members and the rest of the staffing industry
