Vetoes

Christie Conditionally Vetoed Two Equal Pay Bills, Including A Bill To Extend The Period Of Time For Employees To File Gender Discrimination Lawsuits And A Bill To Prohibit Employers From Retaliating Against Employees Who Discuss Salaries. According to the Newark Star-Ledger, “Democrats last year sent the governor a package of four bills on the topic. He signed one (A2647) that requires employers to post information on state and federal gender discrimination laws. He conditionally vetoed the other two bills – one that would extend the period of time employees could sue for gender discrimination (A2650), and one that would bar employers from retaliating against employees who discuss job titles and pay (A2648). On the former, Christie said he was bringing the bill in line with the federal Lilly Ledbetter Act.” [Newark Star-Ledger, 4/9/13]
