Update: New Jersey Supreme Court to Address Contractually-Shortened Statute of Limitation Provisions

Written by David Katz

Over the summer, we posted about an interesting New Jersey appellate court decision (Rodriquez v. Raymours Furniture) enforcing a provision in a job application that reduced the period in which an employee could sue an employer to six months from the date of the adverse employment action.  We also noted a 2013 New York appellate decision involving the same employer, the same policy and the same result.  Well, not so fast on revising those job applications to abridge limitations periods (at least in New Jersey).  We learned that just last week New Jersey’s highest court granted the plaintiff’s petition for certification, agreeing to review the June 2014 appellate court decision.  We will of course follow the New Jersey Supreme Court proceedings so stay tuned.
