Fuentes, Mosquera, Riley & Benson Bill Granting Access to Work Leave Time for Domestic Violence Victims Gets Final Legislative ApprovalThe full Assembly this week unanimously granted final legislative approval to a bill sponsored by Assembly Democrats Angel Fuentes, Gabriela Mosquera, Celeste Riley and Daniel Benson that will provide increased protections and financial security for victims of domestic violence.
The bill (A-2919) is known as the "New Jersey Security and Financial Empowerment Act" or the "NJ SAFE Act." The measure would provide 20 days of leave time within one year of an incident of domestic violence or a sexually violent offense of which the employee or the employee's child, parent, spouse, or civil union or domestic partner was a victim.
