Earlier this month, the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights (DCR) adopted new and amended regulations which expand the posting requirements for employers under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD) and Family Leave Act (NJFLA). The new posting requirements were effective August 1, 2022.
The new requirements are as follows:
- Covered employers shall display the official employment posters of the DCR (available here and here) in places easily visible to all employees and applicants for employment. Any poster printed from the DCR’s website may not be printed smaller than letter size paper (8½ by 11 inches) and must contain text that is fully legible and large enough to be easily read. Note: In the event that an employer has an internet or intranet site to which all employees have access and to which the employer customarily posts notices to affected employees, posting of the official posters on the employer’s internet/intranet site will satisfy this posting requirement.
- Covered employers shall provide each employee with a copy of the official employment posters annually (on or before December 31 of each year), and upon the first request of an employee. The posters may be made available to employees using one of the following methods: (a) email delivery; (b) through printed material, including, but not limited to, paycheck inserts; brochure or similar informational packet provided to new hires; an attachment to an employee manual or policy book; or flyer distributed at an employee meeting; or (c) through an internet or intranet website, if the site is for the use of all employees, can be accessed by all employees, and the employer provides notice to the employees of its posting.
