Another Mandatory Notice for New Jersey Employers Effective November 21, 2012


New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has signed A2647, a new law requiring employers in New Jersey with 50 or more employees to both post and distribute a notice concerning the employees’ rights to be free from gender-based discrimination in the terms and conditions of their employment. While the law technically will become effective on November 21, compliance will not be required until 30 days after the New Jersey Commissioner of Labor and Workplace Development has approved and published the exact content of the notice, which could take some time.

Existing federal and state law posters already notify employees of their rights to be free from discrimination in terms and conditions of employment, including compensation, based on sex. See, New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, C.10:5-1, et seq., C.34:11-56.1, et seq., Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. s.2000e, et seq., and the Equal Pay Act, 29 U.S.C. s.206(d) and posters. The imposition of this arguably duplicative posting requirement is symptomatic of the increased attention being paid at all levels of government to alleged pay discrimination against women.
