Gov. Murphy signed bill A6206 into law today, Jan. 18, after it was conditionally vetoed with amendments. A6206 reaffirms the right for a real estate salesperson to work as an independent contractor in New Jersey and clarifies that a law signed in 2018, which gave agents the ability to operate as an independent contractor or employee, would be retrospective, as well as prospective. There is still work to do, but this is a big step in the right direction.

Martin Luther King Day is a day of service, putting serving others before self. Similar to what we do as leaders of NCJAR with our Executive Committee and Trustees. We should all look to seize on opportunities to serve those in need. So let's all celebrate the birthday, life, and legacy of Dr. King by "Daring to Dream" for a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive society in which we live.
William "Bill" Flagg
NCJAR 2022 President
Please take a moment to read "The Traits of a Leader: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr."
In December 2021, the NJ Attorney General updated the Memorandum to include the newly signed “Fair Chance in Housing Act”, which applies to criminal background checks. This revised Memorandum REPLACES the one dated October 7, 2020 and should be the only copy now. Every Broker should have a copy of this Memorandum in his/her office made available to every agent. Every Agent should have copies of this Memorandum with them on all listing appointments and every landlord and seller should be given a copy. In addition, a copy of HUD’s Assistance Animal Memorandum should be handed out to all landlords.
Remember. If there is any indication of discrimination you cannot represent that seller or landlord.
PLEASE READ THESE DOCUMENTS IN THEIR ENTIRETY!!
