Lawmakers in Trenton are considering a bill that would criminalize honest mistakes. A2903 criminalizes inadvertent wage and hour violations and holds businesses responsible for the violations of their contractors.
While well intentioned, this legislation would have harmful effects on our state. It makes our business climate worse, creates new motives for filing frivolous lawsuits, and threatens people who have made honest mistakes with possible jail time!
Urge lawmakers to reject A2903!
