On July 31, 2023, an amendment to New Jersey’s Unemployment Compensation Law that ostensibly seeks to streamline the benefits process went into effect. Governor Phil Murphy signed the amendment into law in November 2022.

Most notably, the amended law creates new reporting obligations for employers upon the separation of a New Jersey employee. Existing law requires employers to provide separated employees with Form BC-10 (which includes certain information regarding how to claim unemployment benefits) immediately upon separation from employment.
