Improving the workplace in New Jersey for women and families is the impetus behind a two-bill package that has been announced by Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande.
The first bill would provide a 50 percent tax credit to companies that offer childcare assistance.
“The credit can be earned in a number of ways. It can be earned by operating an on-site child care facility, by contracting with outside childcare providers, by paying for employees individualized childcare. It also applies to home-based providers,” said Casagrande. “Companies will get decreased turnover and increased production. It’ll reduce missed workdays and will make employees more likely to stay with the companies.”
