General Staff Information
NJ First Act: Effective September 1, 2011, the NJ First Act requires that certain classifications of persons employed by a public institution will have 365 days within which to establish a principle residence in NJ. Failure to comply will render the individual unqualified to continue to hold the position. Individuals may seek exemption from the residency exemption committee based on critical need or hardship. For more detailed information from the State on this law, please access the New Jersey First (.pdf file) in Information-Procedures section this site.
Until all documents are posted in the new employee folder in forms section, please make sure that all required documents listed on the “new hire” check list are promptly completed and returned to Human Resources (New Employee Checklist).
Prior to meeting with Human Resources, please inform your Supervisor of your need to take a leave and your probable duration. Please contact Human Resources for an appointment; at the time you meet with Human Resources, you will be provided with the necessary forms to have the leave processed and board approved.
