NJDEP Proposes Fumigation Rule with Potential Implications for Commercial Property Owners

We call to your attention NJDEP’s recently proposed amendments to its air regulations which raise questions as to whether fumigation and/or pesticide application operations, such as in office buildings, are to be subject to the detailed requirements of air permitting. Commercial building owners should review these proposed rules with their pesticide and fumigation contractors. If applicable, these rules may require building owners and/or commercial pesticide applicators to obtain an air permit, meet strict reporting requirements, and even install stacks to vent the fumigants. The comment period for this proposal has been extended to June 1, 2021.

ROI-NJ: Post-pandemic hiring: Ensuring compliance with Diane B. Allen Equal Pay Act as COVID restrictions ease

Lindsay A. Dischley and Nicole C. Tracy co-authored an article for ROI-NJ, “Post-pandemic hiring: Ensuring compliance with Diane B. Allen Equal Pay Act as COVID restrictions ease,” bringing focus to key provisions of the Equal Pay Act that New Jersey employers should be mindful of as they reopen and restaff their operations. In the article, Lindsay and Nicole also shed light on the ancillary cultural benefits that the act helps usher into the workplace – noting, “Compliance with the act makes for a better, more effective working environment. Equitable workplaces lead to an increase in morale, job satisfaction and productivity, which can improve organizational performance. Employees who feel respected as a result of knowing their employers promote workplace fairness and pay equity are also more likely to remain with a company and less likely to complain of discrimination.”

Think Green II: Considering Disposal of Cannabis Waste

I recently blogged about the various kinds of environmental regulatory issues I anticipate will emerge in New York and New Jersey as each state's cannabis industry blooms.

In this post, I will dive a little deeper into the issue of cannabis plant waste disposal and discuss some of the possibilities.
