NEW JERSEY WORK REGULATIONS
Since there are both state and federal laws involved, some individuals might be confused about when and where they should file an employment law claim. Various laws might apply to similar situations, and the laws can vary according to the location. Most states, including New Jersey, have a specific set of rules that offer extra protection on top of what the federal laws offer.
An example is the special protection laws that New Jersey has for prohibiting employers from discriminating against employees based on their sexual preferences. New Jersey state laws will be valid regardless of the number of employees an enterprise has. In contrast, federal laws might only apply when a business has a specific minimum number of employees.
Any petitions for employment law violations that relate exclusively to the state of New Jersey have to be put on record with the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights. In contrast, federal employment legal claims are recorded with the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Some of the local New Jersey employment laws include:
- New Jersey Equal Pay Act
- Conscientious Employment Protection Act
- New Jersey Law Against Discrimination
Several laws preside over employment law affairs including:
- Equal Pay Act of 1963
- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
- Americans with Disabilities Act
- Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989
- Age Discrimination Act
