Assembly Panel Approves Eustace, Andrzejczak, DeAngelo & Sumter Bill to Give Veterans and Certain Groups Access to Filing for Unemployment Benefits Online(TRENTON) - The Assembly Labor Committee in a recent meeting advanced, 9-0, legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Tim Eustace, Bob Andrzejczak, Wayne DeAngelo and Shavonda Sumter to ensure that all claimants have the same access unemployment benefits online.
Currently, claimants who served in the military, worked in government; or worked outside of the state can only apply over the telephone or in person.
"Current policy neglects to provide veterans and others the same conveniences in filing for UI benefits as other residents," said Eustace (D-Bergen, Passaic). "All claimants in New Jersey should have equal access to all unemployment benefits filing options, especially those who have fought for this country."
Singleton, Mukherji & DeAngelo Bill to Create the "Task Force on Construction Industry Workplace Safety and Health" AdvancesLegislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Troy Singleton, Raj Mukherji and Wayne DeAngelo to create an independent panel within the Department of Labor and Workforce Development to assess current conditions and recommend improvements of workplace safety and health polices in the state's construction industry was released earlier this week by an Assembly panel.
"Construction work can be extremely dangerous work under improper conditions and without the proper policies in place to protect workers," said Singleton (D-Burlington). "The task force will help the state to focus its efforts on ensuring safe and fair conditions for all in the construction industry."
