  • April 17, 2020

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has signed a bill revising employers’ notice obligations for mass layoffs to create an exception for such actions necessitated by national emergencies, natural disasters, and other specific events.

The law also delays the effective date of the enhanced notice and severance obligations from the January 2020 amendment to the Millville Dallas Airmotive Plant Job Loss Notification Act.
