Defense Attorney Helps With Electrical Contracting Without Business Permit (N.J.S.A. 2C:21-33) Charges
Of the construction trades, the one that arguably has the most potential to damage property or even take a life is electrical contracting.
To this end, New Jersey requires permitting through the Board of Examiners of Electrical Contractors, which helps ensure the safety of contractors, the public, and property. The statute Electrical Contracting Without Business Permit (N.J.S.A. 2C:21-33) codifies and applies penalties for certain conduct.
Operating as an electrical contractor without such a license, creating the impression that you hold such a license when you don’t, deriving a benefit from work as an electrical contractor, or causing injury to another through operating as an electrical contractor without a license are all crimes of the fourth degree and carry an 18 month maximum sentence if you’re convicted.
