Black History Month February is Black History Month!

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. Also known as African American History Month, the event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month.

Independent Contractor Legislation 011822Gov. 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.
