NJ Law Against Discrimination Amended to Protect Military Personnel and Vets

Printer-friendly version

On August 7, 2017 Governor Christie signed a bill into law expanding the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD) to prohibit all forms of discrimination against members of the Armed Forces and veterans.  The amendment provides for the same level of protection for military personal as the other protected classes under the law - race, creed, color, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, civil union status, domestic partnership status, pregnancy, affectional or sexual orientation, genetic information.  The law took effect immediately.
