Appeals Process - The NJ Workforce Registry for Childhood Professionals Serving Children Birth Through Age Thirteen

A Registry participant may contact the NJ Workforce Registry office by phone or e-mail to question his/her status in the NJ Workforce Registry, acceptance of documentation, etc. NJ Workforce Registry staff will review the participant's file and respond to the participant within two business days to determine if an error was made.

If the participant still does not agree with the decision of the NJ Workforce Registry staff, the participant may issue a written appeal defining the perceived discrepancy.

The Clearinghouse Manager will notify the participant in writing of the decision within ten business days.

If the appeal is denied, the participant may request in writing to the Clearinghouse Manager that the appeal be brought to the state level for final review. The Clearinghouse Manager will notify the participant in writing of the final decision within an additional ten business days.
