In addition to a record keeping requirement notice, a family leave insurance notice and others, New Jersey employers now will be required to post and distribute to employees a notice of their right to work in an environment free from gender-based pay discrimination. The new law applies to organizations with 50 or more employees and goes into effect on November 21, 2012, although it remains to be seen whether the New Jersey Department of Labor will have a form notice ready by that time.
When the law does go into effect (and the form is available), covered employers will be required to initially distribute a copy of the notice to all employees within 30 days after the Department of Labor publishes the notice. Thereafter, an employer must provide the notice to all employees annually or sooner if an employee requests a copy of the notice.
