NJLAD’s “Over 70 Exception” Does Not Apply to Contract Renewal

In Nini v. Mercer Community College, No. A-13/14-09 (N.J. June 1, 2010), the New Jersey Supreme Court upheld the Appellate Division’s 2009 decision holding that a contract renewal is equivalent to a termination; and does not, therefore, fall within the “over 70 exception” in the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (“NJLAD”). Under the NJLAD “over 70 exception”, an employer is not engaged in an unlawful discriminatory practice if it refuses to accept for employment or [promotion] any applicant/employee over 70 years of age.

If you have any questions relating to the Nini decision or the current status of the NJLAD please do not hesitate to contact Robert A. Tandy, Esq. at (201) 474-7103.
