Few integrators do a formal apprenticeship program. However, now a NJ law is requiring any integrator on public works projects (such as state schools, municipal buildings, etc.) to first attend such a program.
However, the state chapter of the Electronic Security Association (ESA), the NJESA says the law could severely restrict the work alarm contractors, including security, life-safety, and surveillance contractors, are able to do.
In this note, we examine:
- What the language of the law says
- Whom the law affects
- Why the NJESA called companies to action
- What another security industry company says
- What the NJ Dept of Labor Wage and Hour Compliance division has to say
- What alarm companies need to do
- What New Jersey legislators have to say
