CAMDEN, NJ, January 10, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Costello & Mains partner Kevin M. Costello, who focuses his practice exclusively on Employment Discrimination and Civil Rights, announced on behalf of Costello & Mains that the firm fully supports Senate Bill 3064, which would extend the protection of New Jersey's Anti-Discrimination and Anti-Retaliation Laws to uncompensated volunteers who perform "work" in a "work place." "I am pleased that Senator Nia Gill has proposed this Bill," Kevin says. "The change is necessary in an economy where increasing numbers of particularly vulnerable younger people offer work without compensation in order to gain experience, references and 'rep' in the work world. It's a 'no-brainer,' since I don't believe anyone could reasonably suggest that it's 'OK' to sexually harass a female intern simply because she's not collecting a paycheck. Her work is no less valuable than those who are compensated and her rights are no less precious."
