NJ Workers' Compensation Rates to Increase in 2020.

NJ Governor Patrick Murphy signed legislation enacting sweeping measures to provide workers’ compensation benefits to essential workers who contract coronavirus [COVID-19] and provides dependency benefits to their survivors. 

 Acting on his commitment to support and uplift New Jersey workers, Governor Phil Murphy today signed a legislative package combatting worker misclassification and exploitation.

An employee leased to another company [ER], ie. From a placement agency [PA], does not have the rights and benefits available to a regular employee.
