N.J. High Court: Employment Agreement With Short Filing Period Is Not Enforceable

(July 7, 2016, 11:36 AM EDT) -- TRENTON, N.J. — An employment agreement that gave workers no more than six months after an employment action to file a claim or lawsuit, a year and a half shorter than the time allowed under New Jersey’s Law Against Discrimination (LAD), is not enforceable, the New Jersey Supreme Court ruled June 15, noting that the case raised a question of first impression (Sergio Rodriguez v. Raymours Furniture Company, Inc., et al., No. A-27-14, N.J. Sup.; 2016 N.J. LEXIS 566).
