On November 19, 2012, a bill (A3444) was introduced in response to reports in the New Jersey Star Ledger that a bank purportedly provided unequal levels of health coverage to its male and female employees. The bill attempts to expand the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD) to prohibit discrimination in the terms of health care benefits provided to employees. The bill has now been referred to the Assembly Financial Institution and Insurance Committee.
