Taking Action When Your Rights Are Violated

If you feel your employee rights were violated in some way, it is your job to speak up and take action. Document every incident you face where you feel you have faced a violation, such as instances where you are asked to continue working after you have clocked out or interactions where you feel you have faced harassment. The documentation you keep is the evidence you will use to support your violation claim, should you choose to file one. Before discussing your case with an employment lawyer, discuss it with your company’s Human Resources department. If you cannot resolve it internally at this point, consider taking legal action.

Employment Laws in New Jersey

Since both federal and state employment laws are applicable, it can be confusing for one to identify where an employment law claim can be made. Sometimes different laws apply to the same situations and filing locations vary. Multiple states in the county, including NJ have their own employment laws that provide extra protection beyond what the federal laws offer.

For instance, the express protections in New Jersey prohibit companies from being discriminant against employees based on their sexual orientation. In general, NJ state laws will apply no matter the number of employees in a business; whereas federal laws might only apply when a company has more than a certain number of employees.

Any New Jersey state employment laws claims are filed with the DCR (Division on Civil Rights). On the other hand, employment law claims that relate to federal laws are filed with EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission).

New Jersey state employment laws include:

  •         New Jersey Law against Discrimination (NJLAD/LAD).
  •         Conscientious Employment Protection Act.
  •         New Jersey Equal Pay Act.


Federal laws that regulate employment law issues include:


  •         Age Discrimination Act.
  •         Americans with Disabilities Act.
  •         1963 Equal Pay Act.
  •         1964 Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
  •         1989 Whistleblower Protection Act.  

Without a doubt, claims relating to employment laws can be complex; therefore it’s vital to consult a knowledgeable Saddle Brook Employment Law Attorney who can expound on what laws apply to your individual situation.
