Employers: Please Stay Off "The WALL"

January 8, 2024

Employers with outstanding liabilities for violations of wage, benefit, or tax laws are ineligible for public contracting opportunities when they are added to the Workplace Accountability in Labor List (The WALL). Any business whose name appears on The WALL is barred from public contracting with State, county, or local governments until they pay their liabilities in full and their business name is removed from The WALL.

Businesses scheduled for posting on The WALL receive an official notification and a final opportunity to settle their liabilities for worker wages, penalties, and fees before their name is posted. The WALL is updated monthly.

Any organization seeking guidance on maintaining a lawful workplace can email the New Jersey Department of Labor at
