Employee Protections in Atlantic City
While powerful employers in New Jersey and throughout the U.S. once exploited their highly dependent workers with little fear of repercussions, the Civil Rights Act of the 1960s began balancing the scales of justice for workers. Today, New Jersey adds its own employee protections. In Atlantic City and elsewhere in New Jersey, employers must adhere to the following employee protection laws:
- A minimum wage law
- Mandatory overtime pay
- Equal pay for equal work
- Whistleblower protection
- Anti-discrimination in hiring practices
- Protections for pregnant and lactating women in the workplace
- Anti-sexual harassment laws
- Anti-racial harassment laws
- Employer retaliation protection
- Wrongful termination protections
- Sick leave protection
- A mandatory 60-day notice before mass lay-offs or closings
Every employee in Atlantic City deserves to be treated with respect and dignity in the workplace. If an employee violates your rights to fair pay or a non-hostile work environment, the attorneys at Grungo Law are ready to loudly advocate for your rights.
