Binding Arbitration for Non-Teaching Staff Members
Author: Caitlin P. DettmerDate: August 19, 2020
On August 13, 2020, Governor Murphy signed S993/A631, which amends the Employer-Employee Relations Act, and requires that any non-teaching staff member have the right to submit disputes regarding whether there is just cause for disciplinary action to binding arbitration. This includes, but is not limited to, reprimands, withholdings of increment, termination or non-renewal, and expiration or lapse of a contract or term.
This applies to any employee who is not a teaching staff member. In addition, this applies to county college employees who are not faculty or members of the professional staff.
