• NJASA Legal Department Research Services - December 2018


    New Jersey has traditionally had some of the toughest, anti-discrimination laws in the United States. Nevertheless, data has suggested that full-time working women are paid less than their male counterparts. In order to address the wage gap, the Legislature passed, and the Governor signed, the Diane B. Allen Equal Pay Act (Act). The December 2018 Administrative Guide will discuss the requirements of the Act and its implications for boards of education. 


    In addition, the School News Briefs reviews three new cases including one in which the Appellate Division affirmed the decision of the Commissioner of Education, finding that a teaching staff member acquired tenure in the unrecognized position of technology coordinator, and was entitled to an elementary teaching position when her position was abolished. 


    The December 2018 Impact on Negotiations also reviews three new cases including one case in which the Appellate Division held that the impact of the installation of surveillance cameras with audio and video capabilities is negotiable.
