  • On August 28, 2013, Governor Chris Christie signed A-2648, which adds a new non- retaliation pay equity provision to the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (“LAD”). The amendment to the LAD prohibits retaliation against any employee who requests from a current or former co-worker information regarding compensation, benefits or occupational category or the gender, race, ethnicity, military status or national origin of any employee or former employee, if the purpose of the request is to assist in investigating or taking legal action regarding a potential discriminatory pay practice occurring in the workplace.
