Employment Laws in the State of New Jersey

The application of both federal and state laws may be confusing when it comes to figuring out where to file a case. Different employment laws may suit the same case and the areas of filing may be different. Many US localities, including New Jersey, possess local laws that offer extra assurances well beyond what the federal regulations offer. For instance, the NJ express protections prohibit employers from victimizing workers based on their sexual orientation.

State employment laws in New Jersey do not pay attention to the number of employees in a company. On the other hand, federal laws tend to only apply when an organization has a specific amount of employees.

Any employment law violations that are directly related to New Jersey state laws must be submitted to the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights. Likewise, any claims that relate explicitly to federal laws are handled by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
