The New Jersey Senate Labor Committee has unanimously passed a bill requiring the state to establish a “Senior Labor Task Force” to study, evaluate and make recommendations in four key areas affecting senior citizen employment in New Jersey.
The proposed task force would:
- Assess the needs and challenges of older workers to remain active in the workforce beyond the traditional retirement age
- Identify barriers keeping senior citizens from re-entering the workforce or obstacles confronting first-time older workers
- Investigate workplace age discrimination and its impact on the development of the senior workforce
- Review the needs of employers to attract and integrate senior citizens into the workplace environment.
The bill will go to the full Senate for a vote. An identical bill is working its way through the Assembly.
If passed, the task force will present its findings and recommendations to the governor and Legislature within six months after its first meeting.
