Is there somewhere I can report violations of Executive Orders? How can I report a business staying open despite being ordered to close or an employer that won't let me work remotely?

You can report a possible violation of an Executive Order using this online form: https://covid19.nj.gov/violation.

To prevent the further spread of the coronavirus, Governor Murphy has issued a series of Executive Orders beginning in March 20 that required many non-essential retail businesses to close and directed certain businesses to adopt practices that limited physical contact, encouraged distancing, and protected workers.

In addition, businesses are required to allow any employee who can do their job remotely to work remotely.

As the Governor announced on May 18, 2020, New Jersey will be following a multi-phase approach for a methodical and strategic reopening of businesses and activities based on level of disease transmission risk and essential classification.

As New Jersey enters this stage, it remains imperative that we follow the measures in place to protect the public health.

Some examples of Executive Order violations include:

  • A business that has been ordered to close, but continues to stay open
  • A business that is not practicing social distancing requirements
  • A business that is not allowing remote work of non-essential employees
  • Gatherings in violation of State limits

Compliance with Executive Orders is not voluntary.
