With the stroke of a pen, Governor Phil Murphy has forever changed the dispute resolution process for employees and employers in New Jersey by rendering unenforceable any provision in an employment contract or settlement agreement that waives “any substantive or procedural right or remedy relating to a claim of discrimination, retaliation or harassment.” Born of the #metoo movement and touted by state Assemblywoman BettyLou DeCroce (R) as protecting “victims from being forced into silence, to allow them to share their stories and fight for justice if they want to do so[.],” the bill became law earlier this year amidst controversy and criticism as another “anti-business” measure by the state Legislature.
