WHAT IS EMPLOYMENT LAW?
Employment law is designed to protect the right of workers. It is a set of rules that helps individuals retain their right to fair work and wages without intimidation or discrimination.
Although the very first employment laws were set in the 20th century, they have since evolved significantly. They now encompass complex areas such as:
- Unsafe work conditions
- Family and medical leave
Employment laws continue to grow to match societal and economic changes. They continue to improve and offer protection to vulnerable members of the community.
At the Law Offices of Usmaan Sleemi, we are continually studying employment laws to keep track of any changes or improvements.
EMPLOYMENT LAW CASES WE HANDLE
Employees complain about many cases, including wrongful termination, sexual harassment, and other employment concerns. Our Maplewood Employment Law Attorneys represent clients in a wide range of practice areas.
We are always open to answering any questions you have about your employment law case. Our seasoned team handles situations such as:
- FLMA claims
- Hostile work environment
- Sexual harassment

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).
