People Science: A Strategic Partner and Alternative to Help Companies Navigate New Jersey’s Temp Law Changes

Introducing the Updated Temporary Services Legislation in New Jersey: In the following overview, we will discuss the key provisions and implications of the new law for businesses and temporary workers alike. Effective August 2023, the new temporary services law in New Jersey brings several significant changes aimed at protecting the rights of temporary workers. Key provisions of the law include:

  1. Written notice requirements: Temp agencies must provide workers with a written notice that includes essential details such as job description, pay rate, and the name of the company where they will be placed.
  2. Wage and hour protections: Temporary workers are entitled to the same wage and hour protections as regular employees, including overtime pay and meal and rest breaks.
  3. Joint liability: Both the temp agency and the client company share responsibility for compliance with wage and hour laws, workplace safety regulations, and anti-discrimination laws.
  4. Anti-retaliation measures: Temporary workers are protected from retaliation for asserting their rights under the law. Both temp agencies and client companies are prohibited from taking adverse actions against them.
  5. Health and safety training: Client companies must provide temporary workers with health and safety training equivalent to that provided to their regular employees.
