  • In recent years, many states and local governments implemented smoke-free air laws prohibiting smoking in public places, including workplaces. Although New Jersey was slow to "jump on the bandwagon," on January 14, New Jersey's Acting Governor Cody, in one of his last official duties, signed into law the New Jersey Smoke-Free Air Act ("SFAA"), making it illegal to smoke in virtually all workplaces. The SFAA becomes effective April 14, 2006.
