Thinking About Working for Government in New Jersey? Make Sure you Want to Live There!

If you’ve thought about working for the State of New Jersey (at any level, including the Public Defender and State’s Attorney offices), make sure you’re willing to live in-state! The State Senate just passed a measure that would require all public employees to live in the state as a condition of employment. The Newark Star-Ledger covered the story, which explains that the measure is not final – it must still be approved by the Assembly (though it was passed handily by the Senate, 26-9). Many jurisdictions require emergency personnel to live in-state or in-town, but this is one of the broadest measures out there.
