Medium large transport X departed from newark and was told to turn left heading 220 degree level at 2000'. The small transport Y was cleared for the approach to teterboro airport at 1500'. I was distraction by other pressing control responsibilities and when the opportunity became available I climbed medium large transport X to 6000'. By this time the aircraft was abeam newark airport. I believe that if newark departures were not restr to an altitude lower than the normal SID altitude the situation would have never occurred.
Original NASA ASRS Text
Title: MLG ON DEP FROM EWR HAD LESS THAN STANDARD SEPARATION WITH SMT ON APCH TO TEB. OPERATIONAL ERROR.
Narrative: MLG X DEPARTED FROM NEWARK AND WAS TOLD TO TURN L HDG 220 DEG LEVEL AT 2000'. THE SMT Y WAS CLRED FOR THE APCH TO TETERBORO ARPT AT 1500'. I WAS DISTR BY OTHER PRESSING CTL RESPONSIBILITIES AND WHEN THE OPPORTUNITY BECAME AVAILABLE I CLBED MLG X TO 6000'. BY THIS TIME THE ACFT WAS ABEAM NEWARK ARPT. I BELIEVE THAT IF NEWARK DEPS WERE NOT RESTR TO AN ALT LOWER THAN THE NORMAL SID ALT THE SITUATION WOULD HAVE NEVER OCCURRED.
