Section: 30:4-91.3: Extension of limits of place of confinement
The commissioner or his duly authorized agent or agents may extend the limits of the place of confinement of a prisoner as to whom there is reasonable cause to believe he will honor his trust, by authorizing him, under prescribed conditions, to
(a) Visit a specifically designated place or places for a period not to exceed 30 days and return to the same or another institution or facility. An extension beyond the 30-day limit may be granted to permit a visit to a dying relative, attendance at the funeral of a relative, the obtaining of medical services not otherwise available, the contacting of prospective employees, or for any other compelling reason consistent with the public interest; or
(b) Work at paid employment to participate in a training or educational program in the community on a voluntary basis while continuing as a prisoner of the institution or facility to which he is committed, provided that:
(i) Representatives of local union central bodies or similar labor union organizations are consulted;
(ii) Such paid employment will not result in the displacement of employed workers, or be applied in skills, crafts, or trades in which there is a surplus of available gainful labor in the locality or impair existing contracts for services; and
(iii) The rates of pay and other conditions of employment will not be less than those paid or provided for work of similar nature in the locality in which the work is to be performed.
(iv) No prisoner employed in the free community in private enterprise under the provisions of this act shall, while working in such employment or going to and from such employment, be deemed to be an agent, employee or servant of the Department of Institutions and Agencies, the State of New Jersey or any of its subdivisions.
