Governor Murphy Signs Bill to Increase Workers’ Compensation Costs

219th Legislative Session Labor Mandate Updates Legislative Updates
On September 14, Governor Murphy signed S-2380 (Sweeney), which would create a rebuttable presumption for workers compensation insurance for certain essential employees who contracted COVID-19 during the scope of their employment. While the CCSNJ understands the need to ensure front-line worker’s health and safety, we opposed this bill as we believe this legislation could hurt efforts to maximize the amount of federal assistance available for employers and employees and may overwhelm New Jersey’s workers compensation system.

Despite the CCSNJ objections and suggested amendments, which were not adopted, the bill was passed by the Assembly by a vote of 42-27-6 and passed the Senate by a vote of 27-12.
