THE WEEK IN TRENTON

NJSA's Lobbyist, Patrick A. Stewart from Public Strategies Impact, has provided members with an update on what is happening in the Trenton and in the state of New Jersey.  This update is available to NJSA Members ONLY in our Legal Resource Library on our website.  Members must be signed in to access the information.  
 
This week's update includes:
  • On August 15, 2018 Newark's City Council quietly approved a city ordinance regulating Newark's hotels, including specifically prohibiting hotels from using temporary staff from staffing agencies. The penalties on hotels for using staffing agencies are significant - up to $2,000 per day for each day the hotel uses a staffing agency. 
Visit NJSA's Legal Resource Library to read the full update and learn how this will affect you!
