Find & Hire a New Jersey Labor & Employment Lawyer
Labor and employment laws are complicated, and different types of problems may need to be resolved in different ways. If you've been injured on the job, for example, you typically cannot sue your employer and will instead be compensated for your injuries through workers' compensation insurance. But if you are injured during the course of your work as a domestic employee, you won't be covered under the workers' compensation insurance system and may have to sue your employer. Your New Jersey employment lawyer can help you navigate these complex rules and ensure you follow the proper procedure for resolving your work-related problem.
