What’s to Come from the Governor’s Desk Re: Employment
David Lichtenberg of the New Jersey office wrote the article “What’s to Come from the Governor’s Desk Re: Employment” featured in the New Jersey Law Journal. In this article, David informs us on Phil Murphy’s legislative agenda as New Jersey’s new governor. Governor Murphy’s first executive order focused on employment, prohibiting state agencies from asking job applicants about their salary histories. He has also pledged to raise the minimum wage, combat the opioid crisis, legalize recreational marijuana and make statewide paid sick leave a top priority.
If Governor Murphy’s employment-specific initiatives are enacted, David highly recommends employers follow these changes closely, so that they can make educated decisions if and when those specific bills become laws.
