About the Program 
On Tuesday, May 24, 2018 New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed into law a bill amending the state discrimination law, including sweeping pay equity protections. This amendment makes New Jersey’s law one of the broadest equal pay statutes in the country including treble damages, a six year statute of limitations and incorporated the continuing violation doctrine into the law. Under the new law, it is unlawful for anyone who is in a “protected class” under NJ’s Law Against Discrimination to receive lower pay or benefits for “substantially similar work.” This session will discuss best practices for staying in compliance and what your company needs to know now that the law has passed.
