New Jersey Employers Must Post and Furnish New Notice to Employees

(N.J. Stat. § 34:1A-1.14; N.J.A.C. § 12:2-1.3)

December 7, 2011

New Jersey employers must now post and distribute a new notice published by the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development.  This notice informs employees of employers’ recordkeeping obligations under various New Jersey employment laws. 

 Employers must:

  1. post this notice conspicuously in the workplace; and
  2. distribute this notice to:
    • all current employees; and
    • all new employees, at the time of hire. 

If an employer has an internet site or intranet site for exclusive use by its employees and to which all employees have access, employers may post the notice on this site to satisfy the posting requirement.  Additionally, employers may use e-mail to distribute the notice to individual employees. 

A copy of this notice can be obtained from the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development’s website (see http://lwd.state.nj.us/labor/forms_pdfs/EmployerPosterPacket/MW-400.pdf).

Full compliance with these requirements is expected as of December 7, 2011.  New Jersey employers who have not yet posted and distributed the notice should post this notice now and distribute it to current employees as soon as possible.  Employers should also ensure that this new notice is included with the materials provided to new employees at the time of hire.

Please do not hesitate to contact any of our attorneys if you have any questions or need any assistance complying with this new requirement.
