New Jersey is the latest state to mandate a comprehensive equal pay law, called the Diane B. Allen Equal Pay Act.  What makes this law different and more robust than laws in other states is that the New Jersey equal pay law will soon extend legal protections beyond gender and provide relief to all classes of employees protected under the state's antidiscrimination law.

New Jersey's existing wage and hour law already prohibits employers from discriminating in any way in the rate or method of payment of wages to any employee because of his or her sex.

The new law, which will take effect on July 1, expands this protection and amends the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination to make discrimination in wages on the basis of any protected class an unlawful employment practice. With the new law soon taking effect, you need to carefully analyze your existing pay practices to ensure compliance.
