Notice of Proposed Rules

Date of Proposal:
July 18, 2005

Proposal Number:
PRN 2005-251

Proposal Summary:
The New Jersey Division on Civil Rights proposes to re-adopt with amendments its rules pertaining to Discrimination on the Basis of Disability. Certain amendments to the existing rules concerning housing discrimination are proposed in order for the Division to achieve certification as a substantially equivalent agency by the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development, which permits the Division to enter into a work-sharing agreement with HUD. Other amendments would clarify the obligation of places of public accommodation to provide reasonable accommodation to patrons with disabilities and clarify that a leave of absence from employment is a form of reasonable accommodation for an employee with a disability. The proposed re-adoption with amendments appears in the July 18, 2005 edition of the New Jersey Register.

Summary of Proposal:
A summary of the proposed re-adoption with amendments is posted on the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights Web site at:
