On May 22, a bill (A2791) was introduced that would create a “New Jersey Senior Labor Task Force,” appointed by the Governor, to study and evaluate issues concerning employment of senior citizens in the State’s (private and public sector) labor force, including age discrimination, eliminating barriers preventing senior citizens from the labor force, and finding ways to encourage employers to employ senior citizens. The Committee would then have six months to make recommendations to the Governor and Legislature, along with proposed bills to address any issues of noted concern.
