CONCORD – Today, the Senate Health and Human Services Committee unanimously passed an amended version of SB 123, making it unlawful to require any employee or applicant for employment to pay the cost of a COVID-19 test as a condition of employment.


After the vote, Senator Tom Sherman (D-Rye) and Senator Sue Prentiss (D-West Lebanon) issued the following statement:

“As in other employment settings, this bill ensures that employees will not bear the financial burden of employer-required COVID-19 testing. While this access to testing is essential in mitigating the spread of COVID-19, SB 123 removes any financial barrier to that testing, allowing Granite Staters a safe return to work."
