On March 15, 2012, a bill (A2840) was proposed for introduction that would prohibit employers from obtaining, requiring as a condition of hire, or discriminating against potential employees on the basis of credit reports. As of press time, the text of this bill was not yet available, but it is likely similar to several prior credit history bills that are either pending or failed to pass in the New Jersey legislature. (For more information, see the February 2012 and October 2010 issues of the New Jersey eAuthority.)
