Currently, New Jersey overtime and minimum wage laws do not apply to summer camps (and other summer conferences and retreats) operated by non-profit or religious corporations or associations. On June 5, 2014, the Assembly proposed an amendment to New Jersey’s Wage and Hour Law (A3291) that would (1) expand the overtime and minimum wage exemption to any employees of private summer camps who are under the age of 22 and who had been enrolled in high school, college, or vocational classes immediately prior to starting employment at the camp; and would (2) expand the overtime exemption (but not the minimum wage exemption) to any employees (regardless of age) who work at overnight private summer camps during the months of June, July, August, or September. The bill has been referred to the Assembly Labor Committee.
