Domestic Workers Employment Rights Enacted

Effective July 1, 2024, the New Jersey Domestic Workers Bill of Rights Act will, according to the governor’s press release, “[E]stablish a broad range of rights and employment protections for domestic workers . . . [by providing] domestic workers with antidiscrimination and antiharassment rights, health and safety protections, and privacy rights.”

The law will remove the exclusion of certain domestic workers from the New Jersey Wage and Hour Law, set rest and meal break requirements, and require that employers provide domestic workers with notice before they’re terminated. Additionally, the law will prohibit employer retaliation and require that domestic workers receive employer-provided notice about their legal rights.
