“New Jersey’s National Guard defends our state and our country, both at home and abroad,” Singer said. “Whether they are deployed overseas, or serving their own community during a domestic disaster, these brave people should never have to worry about losing their job when they return home. As a proud veteran, I will continue to fight to ensure no employer, especially the State of New Jersey, discriminates against an employee if they are called to serve during an emergency.”

Singer’s bipartisan legislation, S-3594, provides members of the National Guard of New Jersey with the same employment protections as those provided to members of the United States Armed Forces called to federal active duty. This includes domestic deployment during a state emergency.

“Military life is tough as it is, especially when you are separated from your loved ones for extended periods of time,” Singer added. “Coming back to the empty promise of a civilian job is frankly, a slap in the face, especially given their commendable service to our country. Together, we will take action to protect New Jersey’s active-duty personnel from employment discrimination.”
