On November 4, 2011, the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development (“NJDOL”) issued a new notice/poster entitled “Employer Obligation to Maintain and Report Records.”  A copy of the poster can be found here.

Employers are required to immediately post the notice and provide it to all new employees hired on or after November 7, 2011.  Additionally, by December 7, 2011, employers must distribute the poster to all current employees who were hired before November 7, 2011.

Employers should immediately take steps to ensure compliance with the posting and distributions requirements of the new poster and should seek legal counsel if they have any questions concerning their obligations.
