Urgent Alert

Re:  Recent Appellate Ruling on Rice Notices

Dear Mayor:

We would like to bring to your attention a recent Appellate Division ruling (Kean Federation of Teachers v. Morell, Kean University’s Board of Trustees)  that employees and prospective employees are entitled to receive a “Rice Notice” when a matter involving their employment is placed on the board’s agenda.   In addition, the ruling addresses the “prompt availability” of minutes and the need to adopt a meeting schedule that will enable such a release.  The decision is online here:

The League is reviewing this decision and will provide you with comments shortly.

Executive Director
