Preventive Law for Employers

NJ Unemployment Law Amended Yet Again

On October 27, 2010,  NJ unemployment law received some administrative amendments.  Most notably, employers will no longer have their accounts charged when benefits are mistakenly paid because of a error by the Division of Unemployment and TDI.  However, since the Governor refused to sign the original bill presented, because it also forgave repayment by the faultless unemployed claimant of those mistaken benefits, that provision was omitted from the final bill, PL 2010, c. 82.

Other changes include:

  • As of December 1, 2010,  requring employer agents, oither than attoneys, to register with the Division and be regulated by the Division, which has the power to suspend or revoke the agent’s registration for repeated violations.
  • Increasing the time for appeals of final determinations, from 10 to 20 days after mailing.
