New Jersey’s Employment Laws and Protection

While historically, powerful employers often exploited their workers with low pay and long hours in dangerous workplace environments, the state of New Jersey has put many significant laws in place to protect today’s workers. Employment laws in New Jersey help to ensure every employee receives fair treatment in comfortable work environments that are free from harassment and discrimination. New Jersey’s employee protections include:

  • A minimum wage law
  • Overtime payment laws
  • Equal pay rights
  • Anti-discrimination hiring laws
  • Whistleblower protection laws
  • Sexual harassment protection
  • Racial harassment protection
  • Anti-retaliation laws
  • Wrongful termination protection
  • Protections for unpaid maternity leave and sick leave
  • 60-day mandatory warning of upcoming layoffs or business closings

The state adds many safeguards for employees in addition to the federal protections put in place in the 1960s Civil Rights Act. Sadly, some employers still prioritize profits over fair employee practices, leading to violations of these laws. At the firm of Grungo Law in New Jersey, our South Jersey employment law attorneys vigorously defend our clients when an employer violates these rights and protections.

What Can a New Jersey Employment Lawyer Do For My Case?

Some employers take unfair advantage of their employees and violate employment laws such as asking employees to work off the clock to avoid overtime payments or failing to address sexual harassment allegations. Employees in New Jersey deserve safe, non-hostile working environments and fair wages for their labor, including appropriate overtime pay. If your employer has violated your rights and protections under New Jersey employment law, you deserve a dedicated attorney with a track record of success against the most powerful employers in the state to help you gain the compensation you deserve.
