NEWLY HIRED PUBLIC EMPLOYEES WILL HAVE TO MOVE TO NEW JERSEY

Newly hired public employees will be required to live in New Jersey or to move to the state within one year of taking a public position under a law that took effect on Thursday.

The “New Jersey First Act” provides one year for individuals hired on or after Sept. 1 to locate within the state. It also creates a process for employees facing extreme hardship or other extraordinary circumstances to seek an exemption from the residency requirement by petitioning a five-member committee established under the law. Current employees living over state lines are exempt from the residency requirement.
