Assembly Democrats News Release

Fuentes, Lampitt, Riley Bill to Fight Wage Discrimination Becomes Law

(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Angel Fuentes, Pamela Lampitt and Celeste Riley to help fight wage discrimination has been signed into law.

The new law (A-2648) prohibits employer retaliation against any employee who discloses to any other employee, former employee, or their authorized representative, certain information such as the job title, occupational category, and rate of compensation (including benefits), or the gender, race or other characteristics of the employee or former employee if the disclosure was made for the purpose of investigating the possibility of pay or compensation discrimination.

"Putting a gag order on employees enables employers to continue discriminatory compensation practices because they can operate behind a cloak of secrecy," said Fuentes (D-Camden/Gloucester). "Employees shouldn't face threats for willingly sharing information about their own job, especially in the name of pay equity."
