New Jersey Law Against Discrimination
The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (LAD) prohibits discrimination based on an individual's race, creed, color, national origin, nationality, ancestry, age, sex, familial status, marital/civil union status, religion, domestic partnership status, affectional or sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, atypical hereditary cellular or blood trait, genetic information, liability for military service, and mental or physical disability.
What is required of employers?
New Jersey employers must ensure that they are not discriminating against employees who are members of any of the protected classes outlined in LAD with respect to their pay.
