HR Alert: New Jersey Issues Poster Regarding Employee Misclassification
A new mandatory poster has been made available for New Jersey businesses. Earlier in the year, Governor Murphy signed into legislation new laws intended to combat worker misclassification. Part of that package included a requirement for companies to conspicuously post a notice, which has now been released. While the notice is to be placed at the worksite, there has been no guidance on how to handle that process in our current environment with so many companies operating remotely at this time. In the absence of having in-person operations, it may also be a good idea to also post this notice on a shared intranet site, if available.
The poster can be found on the New Jersey Department of Labor website in two sizes – 11×17 poster and 8×11 poster.
