New Jersey’s Domestic Violence Victim Leave Law Poster Now Available

On October 1, 2013, the “New Jersey Security and Financial Empowerment Act” (NJ SAFE Act) becomes effective. This law provides new leave rights to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, and creates additional notice obligations for New Jersey employers. A detailed summary of the law, which applies to public and private employers with 25 or more employees, is available here. One of the many requirements under the law is that employers must conspicuously display a notice of employees’ rights and obligations under the Act, in a form to be provided by the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development. That notice is now available here, and must be posted in all covered New Jersey workplaces by October 1.
