ALBANO BILL ON SICK LEAVE HEADS TO CHRISTIE

Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Pamela R. Lampitt and Nelson T. Albano to limit unused sick leave payouts for current and future public officers and employees received final legislative approval on Monday.
“I see no reason why these same reasonable restrictions shouldn’t be placed on public workers,” said Albano (D-Atlantic/Cape May/Cumberland). “It’s the fiscally responsible and ethically sound course for our state.”
The bill was approved 78-0 by the Assembly. It was approved by the Senate in September and now goes to the governor.
The bill (A-3392) amends current law to prohibit current and future officers and employees of boards of education and local governments from receiving any more than $15,000 of supplemental compensation at retirement for accumulated unused sick leave.
It would also limit the carrying forward of vacation leave to one-year only.
The bill is among nearly 20 property tax reform bills advanced by the Assembly this year.
Current law imposes these limits on officers and employees who started service on or after May 21, 2010, and for high-level officers and employees who were in service on June 8, 2007.
