On March 5, 2009, Governor Jon S. Corzine signed legislation limiting to 180 days the length of unpaid suspensions of law enforcement officers and firefighters pending a (non-criminal) disciplinary proceeding. If the proceeding has not been resolved within 180 days, the individual can regain pay status. Additionally, the law provides for certain procedures designed to expedite the disciplinary hearing process.
