Taking Action When Your Rights Are Violated

Both federal and state laws affect employment law matters. New Jersey has its own laws that provide additional protection to people working in the area. For instance, under the New Jersey express protections, employees should not be discriminated against by employers based on sexual orientation. The state laws apply to all types of organizations regardless of the number of employees, whereas federal laws usually apply in companies with over a specific number of workers.

The New Jersey Division on Civil Rights is in charge of employment violations that are directly linked to state laws. On the contrary, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission handles claims related to federal employment law claims.
