NJBIA Coronavirus Resource Connection
While NJBIA happily provides information on unemployment benefits and related laws, it is not associated with the New Jersey Department of Labor (NJDOL) or any other government agency. As NJBIA is an association representing thousands of businesses of all size throughout the state, this page is designed to provide information to all businesses during this critical time. Unfortunately, we cannot assist with unemployment claims beyond providing appropriate and timely updates to information provided by NJDOL. Specific questions about the status or whereabouts of unemployment claims should be directed to NJDOL.
NJBIA is continuing to update our Coronavirus Resource Page as the impacts to New Jersey’s response to the health crisis become more widespread and defined, and as we maintain regular communications with Gov. Murphy’s office, the Legislature and our state agencies.
Our goal is to feature timely one-stop connections to the most critical business-related links from state and federal departments and other important sources to help guide you during this unprecedented time.
We are also working with the Employers Association of New Jersey for assistance on some HR-related employer questions. We hope your business and employees will find the following coronavirus-related resources helpful. And remember that NJDOH has set up a 24-hour public hotline (1-800-222-1222) with trained professionals to answer any questions about COVID-19.

- An employer who has at least 10 employees may apply to the division for approval to provide a Shared Work program. The purpose of such a program is to stabilize an employer’s workforce during a period of economic disruption by permitting the sharing of the work remaining after a reduction in total hours of work. Under an approved Shared Work program, workers who have their hours of work reduced may receive "short-time" unemployment benefits for the lost hours of work, while continuing to work at reduced hours with a continuation of their health insurance, pension coverage, and other benefits.

A summary of each executive order passed by the Governor's office during this crisis. Contains in-depth explanation of Executive Order 107 and what is considered exempt or non-exempt.
Exempt, Non-Exempt or Unclear
Gov. Murphy announced Executive Order No. 107 on Saturday, March 21, 2020, effective at 9:00 p.m., containing new standards for businesses which supersede previous orders. The following focuses on what the state considers Exempt, Non-Exempt and what to do if you are unclear of your business status. We have constant contact with the state in an effort to gain more clarity. Please continue to check back here as we update this page on a daily basis, often several times per day. If you have specific questions, please complete the Question/Comment form on this page. We will try to respond as quickly as possible.
1. Exempt from Executive Order 107
Businesses that are considered essential and able to continue operations so long they follow CDC guidance and social distancing recommendations. Only the following RETAIL businesses are considered essential and exempt from the mandate to cease storefront operations include. All other RETAIL businesses must follow the EO and close. Essential retail businesses that are exempt from the mandate to cease storefront operations:
- Grocery stores, farmer's markets, and farms that sell directly to customers, and other food stores, including retailers that offer a varied assortment of foods comparable to what exists as a grocery store
- Pharmacies and medical marijuana dispensaries
- Medical supply stores
- Gas stations
- Convenience stores
- Ancillary stores within healthcare facilitiesHardware and home improvement stores
- Vehicle rental locations
- Banks and other financial institutions with retail functions
- Laundromats and dry-cleaning services

Added 3/24 as per administrative order No. 2020-5
- Mobile phone retail and repair shops
- Bicycle Shops, but only to provide service and repair
- Livestock Feed stores

- Farming Equipment Stores
All businesses or non-profits must accommodate their workforce for telework or work-from-home wherever practicable. To the extent that employees need to be on site, businesses should operate with the minimum number of on-site employees needed for critical operations to continue. Examples of such employees include cashiers or store clerks, construction workers, utility workers, repair workers, warehouse workers, lab researchers, IT maintenance workers, janitorial and custodial staff, and certain administrative staff.
Manufacturing, industrial, logistics, ports, heavy construction, shipping, food production, food delivery, and other commercial operations may continue to operate, but they should also limit staff on site to the minimal number needed for essential operations.
Medical facilities may continue to operate. Medical facilities include any facility where a sick or injured person is given care or treatment, such as: doctor’s offices, hospitals, dentist offices, long-term care facilities, and other medical offices.
Other Special Instances
Employees reporting to work are permitted to travel to and from their place of business. Businesses are encouraged to give each employee a letter indicating that the employee works in an industry permitted to continue operations.
Governor Murphy also signed Executive Order No. 108, which invalidates any county or municipal restriction that may conflict with Executive Order No. 107. This is effective at 9 p.m. on Saturday, March 21, 2020, as well. The only exceptions are two categories in which municipalities or counties may impose additional restrictions: 1) online marketplaces offering lodging; and 2) municipal or county parks.
If you believe your retail business is unique and should be considered an "essential business," it may be submitted to the State Director of Emergency Management, who is the Superintendent of State Police. The Director has the discretion to make additions, amendments, clarifications, exceptions, and exclusions to these lists. If your business falls into a category already exempted, or you are not a retail business, you do not need an exemption and should not pursue this option.
If any business is not following social distancing guidelines, you can report the business by contacting your Local Health Department, which you can identify with the Find Your Local Health Department tool. (Source: Business.NJ.gov)
2. Non-Exempt: Subject to Closure
Businesses considered non-essential and therefore, must cease operations as of 9:00 pm 3/21/2020 do not fit the definitions outlined in number 1.

You can also contact the state through the NJ Business Action Center for information about waivers: NJ Business Action Center
3. Classification Unclear
We are working in real time with the Governor’s office and state agencies, trying to gather more guidance relating to this. Please stay connected to this page. We will update it as soon as we have more clarity.

This program will review key components of health screening policies that employers should consider when reopening their place of business, including:|
• Screening methodology
• Screening protocols
• Maintaining confidentiality
• Consequences of screening/test refusals
• Testing costs
• Reasonable accommodations and permissible exemptions under federal laws

|Protecting Email During COVID and Our New Cybersecurity Reality In the way that we now must all take certain actions to be healthy and safe during the current COVID-19 pandemic, the same is true for how we do business online via email.

Even as the current crisis abates to some extent, working remotely, increased use of cloud platforms, increased phishing attacks through email will remain part of the ‘new’ business environment|
