Our Employment Law Practice Areas
Our lawyers represent employees who are facing a variety of conflicts or disputes related to employment and labor laws. We are proud of our commitment to upholding the labor laws set forth by both the state and the federal governments, and can represent you in regards to the following–
- Workplace discrimination. Workplace discrimination is not only hurtful, but illegal, too. If you have been discriminated against at work, do not hesitate to contact our employment law attorneys. We have experience representing our clients in the following types of discrimination cases:
- Age discrimination
- Pregnancy discrimination
- Disability discrimination
- Race and national origin discrimination
- Accommodations and leave of absence
- Hostile work environment
- Harassment and sexual harassment
- Whistleblowing and anti-retaliation
- Severance review. When an employee is terminated against their will, they may be offered a severance package. This is especially common for top executives and employees who have been with a company for many years. While a severance package can offer a salary, payout, or/and other bonuses, it often contains provisions and conditions that can greatly affect an employee’s rights and future. Before you sign anything, we strongly recommend consulting with an employment law attorney.
- Employee misclassification. Employees are misclassified for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, misclassification is unintentional; other times, it is done as a strategy to save the employer money. In either case, misclassification is against the law and can have serious consequences on an employee’s benefits and compensation. If you believe you’ve been misclassified, please reach out to our law firm directly.
- Wage and hour disputes. Employees must be compensated at a rate that is at least the minimum wage for the state of New Jersey, which is $11 per hour. Failure to compensate an employee at this rate, or failure to compensate an employee at a rate at 1.5 times the hourly rate for hours worked above 40 in a week, is a breach of wage and hour laws.
