Key Legal Concepts Simplified

Employment law encompasses a range of legal concepts and terms that can often seem daunting. Here, we break down some key concepts:

  • At-Will Employment: New Jersey is an "at-will" employment state, which means that, generally, an employer can terminate an employee for any reason. However, there are important exceptions, such as terminations based on discrimination or retaliation, which are illegal.
  • Discrimination Laws: Federal and state laws, including the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, protect employees from discrimination based on various factors such as race, gender, age, and disability.
  • Wage and Hour Laws: These laws regulate minimum wages, overtime pay, and other aspects of employee compensation. Mercer County employees and employers must adhere to both state and federal guidelines.

At Attorneys Hartman, Chartered, we not only provide legal representation but also strive to educate our clients about their rights and responsibilities under the law. By understanding these key concepts, our clients are better equipped to navigate their legal situations effectively.
