Employer Responsibilities Under New Jersey Employment Law

The attorneys at Kaufman, Semeraro & Leibman, LLP, in Fort Lee advise and represent employers in matters such as the following:

  • Employee handbook drafting and training implementation
  • Hiring and firing, promotions and demotions
  • Workplace injuries and safety regulations
  • ADA compliance
  • Discrimination prevention, complaints and claims
  • Noncompete agreements and trade secret protection
  • Harassment prevention, complaints and claims (including sexual harassment)

Employers have a duty to follow relevant and applicable rules, laws and regulations governing employment. These directives may be found in federal, state or local statutes, in union or professional rules, and in case law (previous court decisions). Prudent employers seek sound legal advice at times like these:

  • When a business is first established
  • When a business undergoes structural changes such as changing of the guard, expansion, mergers or acquisitions
  • When extensive hiring or layoffs are expected in the near future
  • Periodically, since employment laws change frequently
