Section 34:8-48 - Application for agent's license; cancellation of license; issuance of new license; conditional license
34:8-48. Application for agent's license; cancellation of license; issuance of new license; conditional license
a. An application for an agent's license shall state the name and address of the applicant and any other name used by the applicant in the last six years, the name of the holder of the employment agency license by whom the applicant expects to be employed, and any other information concerning the applicant required by the chief to assist in the determination of the applicant's qualifications to provide the services for which the applicant would be licensed.
b. An agent's license shall not be issued until the holder of the employment agency license named in the application confirms to the chief in writing that the applicant is or will be employed by the employment agency. A license issued to an agent of an employment agency shall not authorize employment by any other employment agency.
c. An applicant for an agent's license under this act shall, by means of whatever written examination is required by the director, reasonably satisfy the chief that the applicant:
(1) Has knowledge of the provisions of this act and applicable rules and regulations which is sufficient to ensure that the applicant is able to comply with the applicable laws and regulations; and
(2) Has knowledge of and experience in the fields of employment specified in the application which is sufficient to ensure that the applicant is able to render adequate and efficient service to job seekers.
d. An applicant for an agent's license shall furnish information which will reasonably satisfy the chief that the applicant has sufficient knowledge of employment opportunities, career guidance or counseling, or employment-related services or products which the applicant intends to provide to job seekers.
e. Upon the termination of the employment of the holder of an agent's license, the holder of the employment agency license by whom the holder of the agent's license has been employed shall promptly notify the chief of the termination of employment. The agent's license shall thereupon be canceled and the agent entitled to the issuance of a new license for the unexpired term of the old license without payment of an additional fee upon the written request of the agent, and the holder of the employment agency license who is to be named in the new license as the new employer, except that the director may refuse to issue the new license for any good cause shown within the provisions of this act.
f. For the purpose of enabling individuals to secure experience and knowledge necessary to qualify them as an agent, the director may waive any of the requirements of this section which the director deems proper and issue a conditional license authorizing the holder to perform functions requiring a license, when acting under the direct supervision of a duly qualified licensed agent. The conditional license shall remain in effect for not more than one year.
g. The director shall provide for the issuance of, and shall prescribe the form for, the licenses authorized to be issued pursuant to this act.
h. The director may require licenses to be posted and identification cards to be carried.
i. All licenses shall expire on January 1 of the year following their issuance.
