By Rachel H. Khedouri, Esq.

As discussed in our eAlert HERE, amendments to New Jersey’s Unemployment Compensation Law are scheduled to go into effect on July 31, 2023. Among other things, the amendments require employers to communicate electronically with the Division of Unemployment and Temporary Disability Insurance of the New Jersey Department of Labor & Workforce Development (“NJDOL”).

The NJDOL now has released its “first step” for compliance with the new law. Specifically, employers who do not already have an account with the NJDOL’s Employer Access online service (formerly TWES) must register “as soon as possible.” Employers can create an account HERE, using the code received on their 2023 Annual Combined Assessment Bill. Employers who do not timely register with Employer Access may be subject to penalties; in addition, non-compliance may impact the company’s ability to protest Unemployment Insurance charges. No further action is required at this time for employers who already have an established Employer Access account.

The NJDOL promises that additional guidance is “forthcoming” on what exactly employers must submit electronically through Employer Access when an employee terminates and acknowledges that it is “still developing the new infrastructure” for employers to comply with the impending new requirements. We will continue to monitor for developments.


If you have any questions relating to compliance with the amended Unemployment Compensation Law, please feel free to reach out to the NFC Attorney with whom you typically work or call us at 873.665.9100.
