a. Every consulting firm operating within this State shall, within 60 days following the effective date of this act and annually thereafter, register in writing with the chief on a form prescribed by regulation.

b. Each registration form shall state the firm's name, and any fictitious or trade name used in its operation, each primary location, including street and street number of the building and place where its business is to be conducted, and the names and residence addresses of its principal owners or officers.

c. The director shall establish by rule and collect an annual fee from firm registrants, which shall not be more than the fee paid by employment agencies, to be used to the extent necessary to defray expenses incurred by the bureau in the performance of its duties under this section.

d. In addition to any act or practice in violation of P.L.1960, c.39 (C.56:8-1 et seq.), it shall be a violation of this act for any registrant or its agent to:

(1) Make, or cause to be made, publish or cause to be published, any false, misleading, or deceptive advertisement or representation concerning the services or products that the registrant provides to job seekers.

(2) Disseminate information to a job seeker knowing or recklessly disregarding information that:

(a) The job does not exist or the job seeker is not qualified for the job;

(b) The job has been described or advertised by or on behalf of the registered firm in a false, misleading, or deceptive manner;

(c) The registrant has not confirmed the availability of the job at the time of dissemination of the information; or

(d) The registrant has not obtained written or oral permission to list the job from the employer or an authorized agent of the employer.

e. The director may refuse to issue, and may revoke, any registration for failure to comply with, or violation of, the provisions of this section or for any other good cause shown, within the meaning and purpose of this section. A refusal or revocation shall not be made except upon reasonable notice to, and opportunity to be heard by, the applicant or registrant.

f. The director, instead of revoking a registration, may suspend the registration for a period of time determined to be proper, or assess a penalty in lieu of suspension, or both, and may issue a new registration notwithstanding the revocation of a prior registration, provided that the applicant is found to have become entitled to the new registration.

g. A registered consulting firm shall be permitted to provide temporary help services in the course of its business.

h. A registered firm may engage in activities requiring registration under sections 24 and 25 of this act if it complies with the requirements of those sections.

i. Any person who fails to comply with the provisions of this section or rules and regulations promulgated by the director shall be subject to the provisions of sections 14 through 22 of this act.
