Are you considering employment in New Jersey? You should know that in May 2011, Governor Christie signed into law the New Jersey First Act (New Jersey Senate Bill No. 1730). The law will become effective September 1, 2011 (tomorrow) and mandates that public employees obtain a principal residence in the State of New Jersey within one year of beginning their public employment. The principal residency requirement applies to all regular and temporary employees, unless otherwise exempt. The law defines principal residency as: (1) where the individual spends the majority of his or her nonworking time, (2) the location which is most clearly the center of his or her domestic life, and (3) the location which is designated as his or her legal address and legal residence for voting. When applying to a New Jersey public employer, new employees will be required to establish principal residency in the State of New Jersey within 365 days from the date of hire unless otherwise exempt.
