This is just another reminder that the law requires employers every year (by December 31st) to post and distribute notices advising their employees that they have the “right to be free from gender inequity or bias in pay, compensation, benefits, or other terms or conditions of employment.”

 The following is required:

 (1) Covered employers (that is, employers in New Jersey which have a total of 50 or more employees, whether those employees work inside or outside of New Jersey) must conspicuously post the gender equity notice in a place or places accessible to all New Jersey employees in each of the employer’s workplaces.  In the event that a covered employer has an internet site or intranet site for exclusive use by its employees and to which all employees have access, posting of the gender equity notice on the covered employer’s internet site or intranet site will satisfy the conspicuous posting requirement.

(2) For each employee, the covered employer must provide that employee with a written copy of the gender equity notice at the time of the employee’s hiring.

(3) Covered employers must annually, on or before December 31 of each year, provide each employee a written copy of the gender equity notice.

(4) Covered employers must provide each employee a written copy of the gender equity notice upon first request of the employee.

This is just a reminder that the New Jersey Health Insurance Market Preservation Act is effective January 1, 2019.  This new law is a continuation of the federal Affordable Care Act (ACA) provision, requiring every New Jersey resident to obtain health insurance or make a Shared Responsibility Payment (SRP).  While the federal individual mandate penalty will no longer be imposed to the uninsured in 2019, under this new law, New Jersey taxpayers who are subject to the individual mandate (and their dependents) must have minimum essential coverage (MEC) during each month of the year in 2019.  Those without MEC may be subject to a penalty that is equal to the amount they would have paid if the ACA’s mandate had not been repealed: $695 for adults ($347.50 per child) or 2.5 percent of a taxpayer’s income, whichever is greater. This amount is adjusted for inflation each year.
