On October 7, a bill (A3359) was introduced in the Assembly which would prohibit employers from publishing, in print or on the Internet, any advertisement for a job vacancy which includes a provision stating or suggesting the employer will not consider unemployed applicants. Under the bill, first time violations would result in a penalty of up to $5,000, with subsequent violations resulting in penalties of up to $10,000. The bill was approved by the Assembly on October 25, and has since advanced in the Senate.
