Employment-Related Lawsuits Are Complex Legal Matters
Although employment disputes may appear to be cut-and-dry to the participants, claims involving harassment, whistleblower claims, employment contract disputes and even overtime wage pay claims are complex legal matters. Employment disputes require broad knowledge of federal and state labor, employment and discrimination laws. If you are involved in an employment dispute, it is important to consult with an attorney with a strong, working knowledge of the various employment-related laws and regulations.
At Klafter & Mason, L.L.C., we help New Jersey businesses and their employees determine if their employment practices are in accordance with state and federal law. To discuss a discrimination claim, a sexual harassment claim, a breach of an employment contract claim, an inquiry from the Department of Labor regarding employees vs. independent contractor status, a wage dispute or any other employment-related claim, contact our Manalapan employment litigation attorneys.
