A new bill being proposed by Senator Peter J. Barnes III would protect employees that couldn't make it into work during bad weather or State of Emergency.

According to NJ.com, the bill would protect New Jersey employees from actions  by their employer if they couldn't make it into work during a State of Emergency. The bill would prevent employers from forcing their employees to take a sick day, vacation day, paid leave or an unexcused absence, paid or unpaid leave.

Do you think this is something that is fair to the employers in NJ? Is the bill something we really need for NJ employees to "protect" them?
