New Jersey Employment Laws

Employers must comply with a wide range of employment laws, including laws that cover workplace civil rights, overtime, and minimum wage. Among the laws that employers need to observe include the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, which protects against discrimination to members of various groups. 

Some employers also require to observe federal employment laws, which protect employees who work in mid-sized or large organizations with a specific minimum number of employees. Federal laws include Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act.

The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination forbids employers from participating in discrimination concerning several types of employment activities, including employment privileges, conditions, terminations, layoffs, promotions, pay, hiring, interviews, recruitment, and job advertisements. An employment lawyer can advocate for Morris County employees who suffer from violations of this law. The law prohibits deliberate discrimination based on hereditary blood or cellular traits, military service, gender, sexual orientation, civil union status, domestic partnership status, marital status, sexual harassment, nationality, ancestry, age, gender, pregnancy, religion, creed, race, and color.
