Generally legislators, certain legislative employees, their firms and members of their immediate families are
prohibited from holding an interest in, holding employment with or representing, appearing for or negotiating on
behalf of any casino licensee or applicant or any holding or intermediary company with respect thereto.
In some situations the Law allows for the Joint Committee to approve casino employment for certain employees
and family members. Even part-time legislative employees have casino related restrictions.
Legislators, legislative employees included within the definition of "person" in N.J.S.A.
their firms and members of their immediate families also have casino related restrictions for two years
after State service has ended. These are referred to as post-employment restrictions. Casino related
restrictions, especially those imposed on legislators pursuant to 2:8 of the Code, are extensive and
highly fact sensitive. Legislators and legislative employees having any business relationship with a
casino or a casino applicant, other than as a general patron, are strongly encouraged to contact Ethics
Counsel with the details of the involvement and obtain specific advice.
