NJ Turnpike Authority curbs employee perks
WOODBRIDGE, N.J. - October 26, 2010 -- More than 1,900 New Jersey highway employees will no longer get free rides to work.
The New Jersey Turnpike Authority board on Tuesday voted to eliminate free automated tolling accounts that cover rides for employees to and from their jobs at the turnpike and the Garden State Parkway.
The board also voted to stop some nonunion employees from cashing out unused sick and vacation time at the end of each year. Typically, that's done at retirement. The practice has cost the authority $3.8 million a year.
The votes come one week after the state comptroller found the authority paid its employees $30 million in unjustified bonuses and squandered millions more on health insurance while tolls increased.
