New Jersey vs. Federal Employment Law

Most employers in the United States are required to comply with the federal laws that exist to protect employees. These laws include:

In addition to these laws, New Jersey has laws in place that protect most employees working in the state. These laws include:

  • The New Jersey Conscientious Employee Protection Act; and
  • The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination.

Violations of federal employee protection laws are handled by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and violations of New Jersey laws are handled by the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights (DCR). If you are not sure which agency is the right one to handle your case, your lawyer can determine this for you.

  • Hostile work environment

Exercising Your Rights As An Employee

Document every incident you experience where you feel your rights have been violated. This documentation is the evidence you will use to support your claim if you choose to file one.

Before filing a claim, though, bring your documentation to your employer’s Human Resources department. Usually, issues like those listed above can be resolved internally. If your employer cannot do this, bring your evidence to an experienced employment lawyer to determine whether you have grounds for a claim. If so, your lawyer will work with you to file and pursue your claim.
