Title 34 - LABOR AND WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION
Section 34:6-136.7 - Permit required
34:6-136.7. Permit required
(a) Every employer must procure from the commissioner an employer's permit. Application for such permit shall list the names and addresses of home workers and shall be made on a form prescribed by the commissioner. Such permit shall be in writing, dated when issued, and signed by the commissioner. It shall give the name and address of the person to whom it is issued and shall designate and limit the acts that are permitted. Such permit shall be valid for a period of one year from the date of its issuance, unless sooner revoked, and shall not be transferable for any cause.
(b) Such permit shall be issued or remain valid only where the employer (1) maintains a factory or business within this State or (2) operates through another employer possessing a valid permit and maintaining a factory or business within this State. A permit shall only be issued when the same conditions specified in section 6(b) of this act exist, prevail or are established.
(c) No such permit shall be issued to or remain valid for any independent contractor to act for an employer unless such other employer or employers for whose direct or indirect benefit or account such independent contractor so acts possesses a valid employer's permit; nor shall any such permit be issued to any person, or to the successor in interest of any person, or to a person directly or indirectly owned or controlled by any person, whose employer's permit has been revoked by the commissioner within two years prior to the latest application for such permit.
(d) No employer shall deliver or cause to be delivered any article or materials for industrial home work to an independent contractor who is not in possession of a valid employer's permit.
(e) No employer shall deliver or cause to be delivered any article or materials for industrial home work unless (1) such an employer is in possession of a valid permit; (2) the home worker is in possession of a valid home worker's certificate where such article or materials are distributed to said home worker by employer; (3) where subsequent distribution is intended, such person is in possession of a valid permit. The commissioner may revoke any employer's permit for violation of this section. The employer shall also be subject to the penalties provided in this act for such violation.
(f) Before any permit is granted to an employer to distribute industrial home work from a home, an inspection of home or room therein shall be made by the commissioner. If the commissioner ascertains that such home or room therein is in a clean and proper sanitary condition and that the articles or materials may be distributed for manufacturing purposes under clean and healthful conditions, the commissioner shall grant the permit and allow the use of such home or room therein for the purpose of distributing industrial home work. Every room in which industrial home work is distributed shall be kept in a clean and sanitary condition and shall be subject to examination and inspection by the commissioner, local boards of health or tenement house inspection for the purpose of ascertaining whether said articles or materials are clean and free from vermin and every matter of infectious or contagious nature.
(g) Any person holding a permit issued by the commissioner shall immediately report to the commissioner any case of infectious or contagious disease, of which the employer has knowledge, occurring in a place or home used for the distribution of industrial home work. If the commissioner, local board of health or tenement house inspector shall find evidence of infectious or contagious disease present in any home or room therein where industrial home work is distributed, the commissioner, local board of health, or tenement house inspector shall issue such orders as the public health may require and shall condemn and destroy such infectious and contagious goods.
(h) The permit must be posted in a conspicuous place in the room where industrial home work is distributed except that where such distribution is made from a factory or business, the employer shall file and keep the permit on file on the premises from which such home work is distributed.
