New Jersey First Act

Effective September 1, 2011 all employees of school districts must reside in the State of New Jersey, unless exempted under law. If you already work for the school district as of September 1, 2011, and you do not live in New Jersey, you are not required to move to New Jersey. However, if you begin your office, position or employment on September 1, 2011 or later, you must reside in New Jersey. If you do not reside in New Jersey, you have one year after the date you take your office, position or employment to relocate your residence to New Jersey. If you do not do so, you are subject to removal from your office, position, or employment. If you have any questions regarding the New Jersey First Act, please call the Division of Merit System Practices and Labor Relations at (609) 984-7140.
