New Jersey Enacts New Pay Equality Poster and Notice Law
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie recently signed into law Assembly Bill No. 2647. This bill requires New Jersey employers with 50 or more employees (total number employed – not just in New Jersey) to post a notice informing employees of their “right to be free from gender inequity or bias in pay, compensation, benefits or other terms or conditions of employment” under New Jersey’s Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD) and other state antidiscrimination statutes.
This law takes effect on November 21, 2012, and provides that New Jersey employers will have 30 days to comply from the date that the New Jersey Department of Labor (NJDOL) releases the required notice (probably in late November or December).
