As an employee in Perth Amboy, NJ, you have a variety of rights that are protected under federal law and state law.

At the office of the Sattiraju Law Firm, our Perth Amboy employment lawyer can help. As you navigate the claims process, call our law firm for the support and guidance you need.
Types of Employment Cases We Take On
Our law firm works on a variety of employment case types, including:
- Discrimination can take many shapes and forms in the workplace, but is illegal when someone is treated differently based on a protected characteristic (such as race, gender, pregnancy, etc.) or when they are a victim of harassment to the point that a hostile work environment is created.
- Unpaid wages and overtime. The minimum wage in NJ is higher than the federal minimum wage–it’s $10/hour. All workers must be paid at least the minimum wage, and must also be paid overtime pay (at a rate at 1.5 times their regular wage) if they work over 40 hours in a given seven-day period. If you have an unpaid wage or overtime claim, our law firm can help.
- Retaliation and whistleblower claims. It is important that you report illegal or unsafe activities in the workplace, and that you aren’t retaliated against for doing so. What’s more, you have certain protected rights, such as the right to file a workers’ compensation claim or a discrimination claim. Under the law, you cannot be retaliated against for exercising these rights.
- Employee misclassification. There are a number of reasons why an employer may misclassify an employee; usually, it’s to save money. If you are actually an employee who has been misclassified as a contractor, we can help.
