The NJ Division on Civil Rights (DCR) has updated its employer posting requirements to allow for electronic posting of notices and to include an annual distribution component.
Employers covered by the NJ Law Against Discrimination (LAD) and the NJ Family Leave Act (FLA) are required to display the official employment posters for each law in places easily visible to all employees and applicants for employment. In the event an employer has an internet or intranet site for use by its employee and to which all employees have access, posting of the official DCR notices on the site will now satisfy the laws’ posting requirements.
Additionally, DCR will now require employers provide each employee with a written copy of the official employment poster annually, on or before December 31st of each year, and upon the first request of an employee. It will be acceptable for the notification to be sent out via email; through printed material; or through an internet or intranet website provided the employer provides notice to the employees of its posting.
Employers can find copies of the official posters, which are used for both posting and distributing, on DCR’s website.
