There’s no dearth of commuters or traffic on New Jersey’s roadways, and anyone who’s ever been on the turnpike, parkway or countless other major arteries in the state knows that.
Andrea DeGerolamo, of Berlin, asked her employer, Fulton Financial Corp., if her hours could be changed so she could arrive after the morning commuter rush and leave before the evening rush, the report said.
DeGerolamo claimed the busy roadways and traveling to and from work gave her “commuter anxiety” and depression, the report says. While Fulton Financial Corp. accommodated the change, DeGerolamo claims her duties were significantly downgraded and her employment was subsequently terminated in May 2013, the report said.
So, should New Jersey businesses – located in a commuter-heavy state – cater to employees’ commuter anxiety?
