Wisniewski Legislation to Address Misclassification of Employees Passes AssemblySAYREVILLE, NJ -- Legislation sponsored by Deputy Speaker John S. Wisniewski (D-Middlesex) to address the problem of employee misclassification was passed today by the New Jersey State Assembly. The bill, A1578, is a response to the chronic problem of employers who misclassify employees as contractors resulting in lost state revenues.
"The misclassification of employees improperly deprives employees of protections provided under state and federal law and creates an uneven playing field for law-abiding companies that currently operate under a competitive disadvantage compared to their industry-peers who misclassify," said Assembly Wisniewski. "This bill will address the inequities that exist under the current system."
