New Jersey Amends Unemployment Insurance Notice Requirement

Effective July 31, 2023, New Jersey law has been amended to require when an employer provides the required benefit instructions notice (Form BC-10) to a separated employee disclosing the date on which unemployment begins, the employer must immediately and simultaneously provide that disclosed notice via electronic submission to the Division of Unemployment (Division) together with specific information required by the Division pursuant to directions provided to the employer in advance.

Employers who fail to make the immediate and simultaneous disclosure to the Division may be subject to penalties.

Next Steps for Employers

Prior to the effective date, employers will need to adjust their offboarding procedures and practices to ensure that they are properly notifying the Division when an employee’s employment has ended.

HR Works will continue to monitor this topic and provide updates as more information on the process becomes available from the state.
