Earlier this year, New Jersey Governor Murphy enacted the Diane B. Allen Equal Pay Act an gave the actual certified payroll reporting form an overhaul.
Now, the New Jersey Department of Labor (NJDOL), Division of Wage and Hour Compliance has made major changes to the Statement of Compliance. Among the changes to the form, there is now a section (table) requiring that where the fringe benefit due employees is paid to approved plans, funds or programs (rather than to the employee in cash), contractors must MUST indicate which part of the total fringe benefit amount was paid to each of the following plans/funds/programs:
- and "Other" - which you are required to explain.
The form also requires that for each plan/fund/program, the contractor must include the hourly rate paid, the name and address of the fund, plan or program administrator, the USDOL benefit plan filing number or EIN, and any third-party trustee and/or contact person.
No other state (to date) requires contractors to submit THIS MUCH information.
