Current Legislation - Oct. 18, 2010
Limited Unused Sick Leave and Vacation Leave for School Employees: S-2220 (Sarlo)/A-3211 (Casagrande, Lampitt) part of the Governor’s “toolkit” was released by the Assembly Budget Committee and is ready for a full Assembly floor vote. While NJEA achieved a series of favorable amendments, we still oppose the bill. The legislation would limit unused sick leave pay and vacation leave at $15,000 at the expiration of current contracts. The bill was amended by NJEA in a number of areas, but most importantly would allow current members to keep all of their accumulated sick leave.
“Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Protection Month”: SJR-42 (Codey, Cunningham). This legislation designates February of each year as “Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Protection Month” in New Jersey. The bill passed the Senate 38-0. The bill was referred to the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee on October 18. NJEA supports this legislation.
