Exercising Your Rights

If you believe something has happened at work that is in violation of a state and/or federal law, it’s important to start documenting everything. This is helpful evidence to support your claim as the process progresses. Before you start the claims process, it’s helpful to share your documentation with the human resources manager first. Some issues can be handled internally without the need for you to file a formal claim. In the unfortunate event that your human resources department doesn’t do anything or do not seem interested in resolving the problem, you can then move forward with filing a claim.

If you are an employer, it’s also important to keep the necessary documentation. If you terminate an employee or have to discipline one, you should always have documentation on file that shows the reason behind whatever action you took. You should also keep track of verbal warnings and copies of written warnings.

Examples of Federal and New Jersey State Employment Laws

Companies of a certain size are bound by a number of federal employment laws. If an employer doesn’t have to follow a federal employment law, it’s because the company is too small and doesn’t have the minimum number of employees to qualify. Some of the more common federal employment laws that may apply include:

Some of the most common New Jersey laws that may apply include:

  • New Jersey Conscientious Employee Protection Act
  • New Jersey Law Against Discrimination
