a. A State, county, or municipal law enforcement officer who has been injured in the performance of the officer's duties shall not be discharged from employment as a result of a determination, based upon a medical examination by a physician designated by the employer of the officer, that the officer is physically incapacitated, due to the injuries, for the performance of the officer's usual duties or any other available duties in the department which the employer is willing to assign to the officer.

b. Pending retirement, the employer of the law enforcement officer shall maintain health insurance for the officer at the level that coverage was provided prior to the injury.

c. The provisions of this section shall apply only when the law enforcement officer has filed an application for retirement with the Police and Firemen's Retirement System, the State Police Retirement System, or the Public Employees' Retirement System and the officer has sick leave or workers' compensation time available.

d. The provisions of this section shall apply to both civil service and non-civil service jurisdictions.

(1) A tenant shall promptly notify the tenant's landlord via written or electronic notice when the tenant knows or reasonably suspects that the tenant's dwelling unit contains bed bugs. A tenant who gives a landlord electronic notice of a condition shall send such notice only to the e-mail address, telephone number, or electronic portal specified by the landlord in the rental agreement for communications. In the absence of such a provision in the rental agreement, the tenant shall communicate with the landlord in a manner that the landlord has previously used to communicate with the tenant. The tenant shall retain sufficient proof of the delivery of the electronic notice.
