Effective August 19, 2014, New Jersey Senate Bill 2363 went into effect, requiring contractors required to register under the Contractors' Registration Act, N.J.S.A. §§ 56:8-136, et seq. -- home improvement contractors -- to wear a state-issued identification badge "on the upper left corner of his torso when the contractor is performing, or engaging, or attempting to engage in the business of selling home improvements" at all times on the job. The badge includes a color photograph of the employee's face along with his/her name, and the contractor's registration number and business name. A new badge is required every six years. Governor Chris Christie signed into law S.B. 2363 on August 19, 2013. The bill was reportedly prompted by fears of potential scams on Superstorm Sandy victims. It is believed that requiring contractors' employees to wear these badges will add another layer of protection against fraud.
