CONCORD – Today, the Senate adopted 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:
“Passage of this bill will ensure that employees will not be forced to bear the financial burden of COVID-19 testing when it’s required by their employer. SB 123 removes financial barriers to COVID-19 testing, ensuring employees have access to testing and can safely get back into the workforce.”
