NJASA Legal Department Research Services - June 2019
The regulations governing the implementation of the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act became effective July 1, 2018. Since that time, there have been several cases related to the Act. The June Administrative Guide will review these cases and discuss their impact on school districts as well as on their implementation by school administrators.
In addition, the School News Briefs reviews three new cases including one in which the Appellate Division held that a non-tenured teacher, whose contract was non-renewed, proved that his non-renewal violated CEPA (whistleblower statute), because he had complained about the administrators’ failure to enforce the student discipline policy.
The June 2019 Impact on Negotiations reviews two new cases related to teaching staff members’ authorization to have association dues deducted from their pay in light of the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Janus v. AFSCME.
