New Jersey enacts new posting and employee notice requirements, effective 21 November 2012

On 21 September 2012, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed into law a bill that will require New Jersey employers with 50 or more employees to post and distribute to workers a notice reminding them of their right to be free from gender-based pay discrimination in the workplace. Employers must also obtain signed acknowledgments from workers of their receipt of the notice. Although the law takes effect on 21 November 2012, the notices are not yet available from the New Jersey Department of Labor (NJDOL) and may not be available until early next year. Once the notices are made available by the NJDOL, employers will be required to post and distribute the notices in English, Spanish, and any other language for which the Commissioner has made the notice available, and also in the language which the employer “reasonably believes is the first language of a significant number of the employer’s workforce.” The details of this latter requirement will likely be addressed in the NJDOL’s regulations, which are also forthcoming.
