Employment concerns are addressed both by federal and state employment laws. A single situation could be regulated using different laws. As such, most people may find it difficult to file a claim.
New Jersey provides regulations that further protect its residents beyond federal laws. These include:
- Conscientious Employment Protection Act (CEPA)
- New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (LAD)
- New Jersey Equal Pay Act (NJEPA)
New Jersey employment laws are extensive and offer employees more protection. While federal laws may only cover employers with a certain number of employees, for instance, New Jersey state laws apply to everyone.
If you have an employment law case that falls under specific state laws, your employment attorney will file it with the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights (DCR). On the other hand, any federal employment law claim should be filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
