Employees face a lot of challenges in the workplace. When these challenges involve violations of an employee’s rights, he or she has the right to take action and pursue compensation for the damages he or she suffered as a result of the violation. Although the employee can pursue this compensation by him- or herself, working with a Fair Lawn employment law attorney can increase his or her chance of resolving the issue satisfactorily.
If you feel your workplace rights have been violated, do not wait to start working on your case with an experienced employment lawyer. Our team at the Law Offices of Usmaan Sleemi is here to help you exercise your rights.

TAKING LEGAL ACTION TO RESOLVE YOUR RIGHTS VIOLATION
Most employees in the United States are covered by our federal employee protection laws. These laws include:
- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
- The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990
- The Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938
- The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993
Additionally, New Jersey has laws in place that provide even greater protections for employees. Two notable examples are New Jersey law’s explicit prohibition of discrimination based on sexual orientation and our state’s paid family leave programs.
The type of rights violation you face determines the government agency with which you may file a violation claim. If you feel your federally guaranteed rights were violated, you may file a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). If the violation you experienced involved a state-level law, you may file a claim with the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights (DCR). After reviewing your case, your lawyer can determine which of these agencies should receive your claim.
Once the EEOC or DCR receives a violation claim, it investigates the case to determine whether a violation has actually. If so, it may facilitate a settlement for the employee or file a lawsuit in pursuit of compensation for the employee’s damages.
