EQUAL PAY & GENDER EQUITY 

P.L. 2019, c. 199

 

 P.L. 2019, c. 199 (A-1094)  prevents employers from asking about workers' wage and salary history.  It makes it an unlawful employment practice in New Jersey for any employer to screen a job applicant based on their salary history, including prior wages, salary, commission, benefits or any other current or previous compensation. The law is designed to ensure that employees in the state receive salaries that are commensurate with their skills, qualifications, and experience.  This act shall take effect on the first day of the sixth month next following enactment.
