These laws include all aspects of the employment relationship except the area of collective bargaining and negotiation; this area comes under the area of Labor Law.

  • Review employee documentation and policy statements.
  • Assist with the resolution of issues involving disputes about wages and hours worked.
  • Represent employers before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and New Jersey human rights agencies.
