The New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development is making available to employers a poster notifying employees of their rights under the New Jersey Security and Financial Empowerment Act (NJ SAFE Act). The NJ SAFE Act, which took effect on October 1, 2013, generally requires employers to provide unpaid leave to employees for absences resulting from domestic or sexual violence.

The NJ SAFE Act also requires employers to conspicuously post a notice of employee rights contained within the Act. For more information on the Act, including eligibility requirements and details on the availability of unpaid leave, refer to Ballard Spahr’s previous alert on this subject.

Ballard Spahr’s Labor and Employment Group is available to assist with any questions employers may have in implementing the NJ SAFE Act. For more information, please contact Steven W. Suflas at 856.761.3466 or suflas@ballardspahr.com, Amy L. Bashore at 856.761.3402 or bashorea@ballardspahr.com, or the Ballard Spahr attorney with whom you work.
