    Chapter 12:

      Section: 5:12-60: Post-employment restrictions.

          
60. Post-employment restrictions.

a. No member of the commission nor the division director shall hold any direct or indirect interest in, or be employed by, any applicant or by any person licensed by or registered under this act for a period of 4 years commencing on the date his membership on the commission or directorship, as the case may be, terminates.

b. (1) No employee of the commission or employee or agent of the division may acquire any direct or indirect interest in, or accept employment with, any applicant or any person licensed by or registered with the commission, for a period of two years commencing at the termination of employment with the commission or division, except that a secretarial or clerical employee of the commission or the division may accept such employment at any time after the termination of employment with the commission or division. At the end of two years and for a period of two years thereafter, a former employee or agent who held a policy-making management position at any time during the five years prior to termination of employment may acquire an interest in, or accept employment with, any applicant or person licensed by or registered with the commission or division upon application to and the approval of the commission or the director, as the case may be, upon a finding that the interest to be acquired or the employment will not create the appearance of a conflict of interest and does not evidence a conflict of interest in fact.

(2) Notwithstanding the provisions of this subsection, if the employment of a commission employee or a division employee or agent, other than an employee or agent who held a policy-making management position at any time during the five years prior to termination of employment, is terminated as a result of a reduction in the workforce at the commission or division, the employee or agent may, at any time prior to the end of the two-year period, accept employment with any applicant or person licensed by or registered under this act upon application to and the approval of the division or the commission, as the case may be, upon a finding that the employment will not create the appearance of a conflict of interest and does not evidence a conflict of interest in fact. The commission or the division shall take action on an application within 30 days of receipt and an application may be submitted to the commission or the division prior to or after the commencement of the employment.

c. No commission member, division director, or person employed by the commission or division shall represent any person or party other than the State before or against the commission or division for a period of two years from the termination of his office or employment with the commission or division.

d. No partnership, firm or corporation in which a former commission member or employee or former division director, employee or agent has an interest, nor any partner, officer or employee of any such partnership, firm or corporation shall make any appearance or representation which is prohibited to said former member, employee, or agent; provided, however, that nothing herein shall prohibit such partnership, firm or corporation from making such appearance or representation on behalf of a casino service industry enterprise licensed under subsection c. of section 92 of P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-92).

e. Notwithstanding any post-employment restriction imposed by this section, nothing herein shall prohibit a former commission member or employee or former division director, employee or agent, at any time after termination of such membership or employment, from acquiring an interest in, or soliciting or obtaining employment with, any person registered as a casino service industry enterprise under subsection c. of section 92 of P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-92).

L.1977, c.110, s.60; amended 1979, c.282, s.13; 1995, c.18, s.13; 2005, c.382, s.7; 2009, c.36, s.5; 2011, c.19, s.31.
