About this Episode

On September 30, 2021, Governor Phil Murphy signed into law Assembly Bill A2617, which provides as follows:

Following a work-related injury, an employer shall provide a hiring preference to an employee who has reached maximum medical improvement (MMI) and is unable to return to the position at which the employee was previously employed for any existing, unfilled position offered by the employer for which the employee can perform the essential functions of the position.

In this episode, Greg Lois discusses the impact of this new law on New Jersey employers.

This audio is from a live webinar provided to clients on October 25, 2021.
