On June 22, 2016, Jon Green's article regarding the June 15, 2016 New Jersey Supreme Court decision in Rodriguez v. Raymours Furniture Co, Inc.,---ruling that employers may not through contracts, employer manuals and/or employment applications unilaterally impose a shortened statute of limitations of six months for New Jersey statutes that authorize employees to file a lawsuit claiming workplace discrimination and/or illegal retaliation---was published in the national publication Law360. The article was a rebuttal to the initial June 16, 2016 article reporting the decision that left the erroneous impression that employers would have to scramble to change their human resource practices in view of this ruling when in fact, the New Jersey Supreme Court merely re-affirmed the two-year statute of limitations deadline for cases brought under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination.
