Every State (as well as the Federal Government) maintains statutes making it unlawful to harass an employee because of the employee’s sex. While most employment sexual harassment occurs between a man and a woman. However, cases of same-sex employment sexual harassment are also perfectly valid claims — neither should be ignored. Supervisors, co-workers, subordinates, and even non-employees are capable of sexual harassment under New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey law.
New Jersey sexual harassment comes in many forms. Harassment can be of a quid pro quo nature, meaning that your job or job benefits are tied to whether you refuse or submit to sexual advances. In severe cases, sexual harassment can also rise to the level of physical touching, a physical attack, sexual assault, or even rape. There are both civil and criminal laws that protect victims of such unlawful sexual conduct. In other cases, sexual harassment might create a hostile work environment if you have been repeatedly subjected to unwelcome advances, jokes, comments, pictures, emails, and other conduct of a sexual nature.New Jersey and New York Employment Discrimination Lawyers Fighting for You

As an employee, you have the legal right to take appropriate time to handle a family or medical emergency. In New Jersey you are allowed to take a certain amount of unpaid leave to take care of family or medical situations. When you come back, you have the right to be reinstated to your former position, or a similar position. New Jersey, New York or Pennsylvania employers who refuse these rights have violated the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
Additionally, your employer must adhere to stringent policies regarding fair wage and hour practices. You are required to be paid the minimum wage. In many situations, you must be paid overtime wages for working more than 40 hours per week. If your employer has violated your wage and hour rights, they might be in violation of the FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act).
