New Gender Discrimination Notification Requirements for New Jersey Employees

by Christina M. Michelson on October 9, 2012

New Jersey employers should be aware that Governor Chris Christie recently signed a bill into law that will impose new employee notification requirements. It requires employers with 50 or more employees to post a notification detailing “the right to be free of gender inequity or bias in pay, compensation, benefits or other terms or conditions of employment” under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD), Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, and the Equal Pay Act.

The law also requires employers to provide each worker with a written copy of the notification no later than 30 days after the form of the notification is issued by the Commissioner of Labor and Workforce Development; at the time of the worker’s hiring, if the worker is hired after the issuance; annually, on or before December 31 of each year; and at any time, upon the first request of the worker.
