Common Employment Law Cases We Tackle

Many of the employment law cases we handle relate to:

  •         Employment discrimination e.g. age discrimination, disability  discrimination, race discrimination, religious discrimination and sex discrimination.
  •         Wrongful termination.
  •         Sexual harassment.
  •         Whistleblower claims.
  •         Compensation disputes.
  •         Unequal pay.
  •         FMLA claims.
  •         Hostile work environment.
  •         Retaliation claims.
  •         Leaves of absence.

We successfully defend employees against discrimination, harassment and other work-related claims. Additionally, we help employees to recover significant monetary settlements if they have been treated unfairly by an employer.

It’s worth noting that we also help businesses or employers comply with state and federal laws. Moreover, we assist employers who are facing a lawsuit from a former staff member who claims that they were wronged by the company. We aim to help both employees and employers.

Employment Laws in New Jersey

In New Jersey, both state and federal laws apply. New Jersey employment laws generally cover the following topics:

      •         Discrimination Laws.
      •         Child Labor Laws.
      •         Fair Labor Standards Act.
      •         Health and Safety.
      •         Leave Laws.
      •         Family/Medical Leave (FMLA).
      •         Labor Laws.
      •         Mass Layoffs.
      •         Minimum Wage.
      •         Meals and Breaks.

The state specific employment laws in New Jersey offer additional protection beyond what is availed by federal laws. State laws apply despite the number of employees an employee has, whereas federal laws mostly apply when an employer has surpassed a certain number of employees.

Claims that are related to New Jersey state employment laws are handled by the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights. Any complaints related to federal laws are tackled by U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Some of the federal laws that regulate employment law issues are:

  •         Age Discrimination Act (ADEA).
  •         Equal Pay Act.
  •         Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
  •         Whistleblower Protection Act.
  •         Title VII of the Civil Right Act.
