4:22A-12. Violation; penalty
Any person who violates the provisions of this act, or any rules or regulations adopted hereunder, is liable to a civil penalty of not less than $500.00 nor more than $1,000.00 for each offense, to be collected in a summary proceeding under "the penalty enforcement law," N.J.S. 2A:58-1 et seq. The Superior Court has jurisdiction to enforce that act. If the violation is of a continuing nature, each day during which it continues constitutes an additional, separate and distinct offense. The proceedings shall be brought in the name of the department. The department shall have the authority to compromise and settle any claim for a penalty in such amount as the department determines is appropriate and equitable under the circumstances.
