A bill that would reverse more than 40 years of legislative policy to expand employer liability for injuries that employees sustain off-site in parking lots and other areas not under the direct control of the employer has been referred to the Assembly Labor Committee.

As reported by NJ101.5 News’ Dino Flammia, NJBIA is opposing the legislation because it will “no doubt” lead to increased claims and costs to employers.

“Now, during the middle of a pandemic, when so many businesses are trying to keep their businesses operational, is not the time to impose additional, needless costs onto the business and non-profit sectors,” NJBIA Vice President of Government Affairs Ray Cantor said.

“With parking areas often offsite, this bill will disproportionately harm employers in urban areas, making it even harder to redevelop our cities while keeping jobs out of disadvantaged communities.”
