The long anticipated Right to be Free of Gender Inequity, mandatory to post for New Jersey employers with 50 or more employees, is finally available.
Although the State announced the change in 2012, the posting and its requirements went through an arduous notification and public comment phase prior to final release by the Commissioner of Labor and Work force Development.
The notice informs employees of their “right to be free from gender inequity or bias in pay, compensation, benefits or other terms or conditions of employment” under New Jersey’s Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD).
New Jersey employers with 50 or more employees must provide each worker a written copy of the notification:
- Within 30 days after the form of notification is issued by the Commissioner.
- At the time of the worker’s hiring.
- Annually, on or before December 31 of each year.
- Any time first requested by an employee.
The Right to be Free of Gender Inequity posting is included on GovDocs’ New Jersey State-on-One poster.
