Attorney Discusses New Jersey’s Equal Pay Mandate for Temporary Workers
In an interview with Bloomberg Law, Sarah Wieselthier discusses the fact that New Jersey is the first state to mandate that temporary workers receive pay equivalent to the wages and value of benefits for comparable employees at the company contracting with them. Sarah explains that the equal pay mandate and the threat of joint liability are the big sources of uncertainty and compliance risk as the law comes online. "It’s very unique, I’d say, for the law to essentially put both the third-party company and the staffing company in a situation where you’re both on the hook for violations," she said.
