    Chapter 21:

      Section: 43:21-11.2: Notice posting; penalties for violation

           a. An employer or contracting agent of an employer who employs any employee covered by subparagraph (I) of paragraph (1) of subsection (i) of R.S.43:21-19 shall post, in a conspicuous location or locations accessible to all employees, a notice which shall contain in English and Spanish the following or a substantially similar statement prescribed by the Commissioner of Labor: "Attention Farm Laborer: Any individual seeking unemployment benefits on the basis of the production and harvesting of agricultural crops is required under law to accept an offer of continuing suitable work with his current employer following the completion of the contract of hire if no other suitable work is offered. Failure to accept work under these conditions may result in a denial of benefits until the worker is employed for four weeks and earns six times his weekly benefit rate. If you have any questions about eligibility under the New Jersey 'unemployment compensation law,' you may contact the New Jersey Department of Labor."

b. An employer who fails to post a notice as required under subsection a. of this act shall be issued by the Department of Labor a written warning for the first violation of subsection a. of this section, and shall be fined up to $25.00 for the second violation and up to $100.00 for the third violation and each subsequent violation of subsection a. of this section. A penalty imposed by the commissioner pursuant to this act shall be final, unless within 15 days after receipt of notice thereof by certified mail, the person charged with the violation takes exception to the determination that the violation for which the penalty is imposed occurred, in which event final determination of the penalty shall be made as a declaratory ruling under section 8 of P.L.1968, c.410 (C.52:14B-8) and subject to review in the Superior Court of the State of New Jersey.

c. The Department of Labor shall provide to each employer covered by this section a copy or copies of the notice prescribed by subsection a. of this section.
