Important Federal and New Jersey State Employment Laws

There are federal laws and local state laws that govern employment in New Jersey. In some cases, the state laws may provide additional protection on top of what the general federal law mandates. For example, New Jersey offers protection against sexual orientation discrimination and age-related discrimination for an employee who is under the age of 40.

State laws may offer protections to employees of a business no matter how many employees there are whereas federal laws may only apply to companies with a certain number of employees.

Some New Jersey employment laws include:

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

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

Claims involving New Jersey state employment laws must be filed with the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights (DCR), while federal employment claims are filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
