On April 19, 2012, Governor Chris Christie announced that New Jersey will become the 14th state to adopt the “Employment First” initiative. The Employment First initiative will require the state government to eliminate any barriers or practices that might prevent persons with physical, developmental, and mental disabilities from being employed and will increase the employment opportunities available to persons with disabilities. Both the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development and the Department of Human Services will be instrumental in advancing the goals of the Employment First initiative and encourage private sector employers to improve their efforts to hire persons with developmental disabilities. More information about this Initiative is available here.

"Lexology is a quick and useful indicator of developments in the legal sphere. It alerts me to changes taking place in the legal environment in South Africa that I may not otherwise have spotted or had immediate access to as a company lawyer. It definitely serves as a trigger for me to investigate such changes in the legal landscape in South Africa as they may affect my work and that of my employer. I believe that receiving Lexology provides me with a competitive advantage."
