2016-2017 Regular Session
Under current law, any person who willfully deprives, prevents or obstructs a member of the organized militia in his employment because he is a member of the organized militia, or is performing or about to perform his duty or dissuades a person from enlistment by threatening or harming his employment, is guilty of a misdemeanor. This bill adds members of the United States Armed Forces and the Reserves to those protected by the statute. Under the bill, this act will provide employment protection for military personnel. This bill replaces the term misdemeanor with the current equivalent designation of a crime of the fourth degree. The bill also adds a mandatory minimum fine of $2,500 for a violation of the statute. Any fines collected will be deposited in the "NJ National Guard State Family Readiness Council Fund."
