Worker classification disputes are common in the state of New Jersey. These disputes can not only have a large effect on things such as a worker’s and an employer’s taxes, but also an employee’s rights to benefits, including workers’ compensation insurance, as well as overtime pay, liability, and more. If you are involved in an employment classification dispute, the attorneys at the Sattiraju Law Firm, P.C.—one of the premier employment law firms in New Jersey—can represent you.
