New Jersey Employment Claims

In New Jersey, there are both federal and state employment laws. It makes it very difficult to know exactly which claim you should file which can be quite perplexing. Different laws may apply to the same situation but you have to file the claim in two different locations.

Many federal laws are not sufficient to cover all employment law cases do state laws are put in place to cover that which federal laws do not. A good example is the express protections New Jersey which offers protection against sexual discrimination by employers against employees.

State laws in New Jersey apply regardless of the size or the reputation of the company. On the other hand, federal laws may apply only when the company covers a certain amount of employees.

Employee violation claims that relate specifically to New Jersey laws have to be filed with the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights (DCR). On the other hand, federal employment law claims are filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

Examples of federal employment laws include:

  • Age Discrimination Act (ADEA)
  • Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • Equal Pay Act of 1963

New Jersey state employment laws include:

  • New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (LAD)
  • Conscientious Employment Protection Act (CEPA)
  • New Jersey Equal Pay Act (NJEPA)

Taking Action When Your Rights Are Violated

If you feel your employee rights were violated in some way, it is your job to speak up and take action. Document every incident you face where you feel you have faced a violation, such as instances where you are asked to continue working after you have clocked out or interactions where you feel you have faced harassment. The documentation you keep is the evidence you will use to support your violation claim, should you choose to file one. Before discussing your case with an employment lawyer, discuss it with your company’s Human Resources department. If you cannot resolve it internally at this point, consider taking legal action.

New Jersey Employment Law vs Federal Employment Law

There are certain federal laws that nearly every employer in the United States must comply with, like the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA) and the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938. In addition to these federal laws, many states have additional laws in place to provide greater protection for employees. In New Jersey, these laws include the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD) and the New Jersey Equal Pay Act (NJEPA), a 2018 law that amended NJLAD.

In New Jersey, employment discrimination and other violation claims are handled by the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights (DCR). Federal violation claims are filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). After filing a claim with either agency, the agency investigates the claim to determine whether a violation has actually occurred. If so, the government agency may facilitate a settlement between the employee and the employer or it may file a lawsuit to pursue compensation for the employee’s related damages.
