GOVERNOR PASSES LAW PROVIDING EMPLOYMENT PROTECTION FOR EMERGENCY MEDICAL RESPONDERS DURING STATE OF EMERGENCY

  • Download PDF
Governor Murphy recently signed legislation that provides employment protection to emergency medical responders who are otherwise employed during a state of emergency. The law defines an “emergency medical responder” as a paid or volunteer member of a duly incorporated first aid, rescue, or ambulance squad. The bill also defines “first responder” as a law enforcement officer or paid or volunteer firefighter. Under the law, Senate Bill 2351, co sponsored by Senator Bateman, employers are not permitted to terminate, dismiss or suspend an emergency medical responder who fails to report to work because they are engaged in actions of an emergency medical responder during a state of emergency if they provide 1 hour notice before work that they are engaged in emergency response actions, and, upon return to work they provide the employer the incident report and a certification from their commander that they were part of and necessary to the rendering emergency medical services, and stating the date and time the responder was relieved from their responsibilities. If the emergency related activity continues for more than one day the Commander shall direct that appropriate notice be given to employer. The law provides that the time off is unpaid, however, individuals who engage in approved emergency response activities may use their accumulated sick or vacation time. Emergency medical responders who are law also law enforcement officers or firefighters are permitted to rely on this change in law.
