Software company ordered to pay $3.4 million in unpaid overtime

New Jersey employees classified as exempt from minimum wage and overtime by their companies might be interested to learn that a major insurance software startup will pay $3.4 million in unpaid overtime to greater than 700 of their workers. The agreement to repay employees came after the Department of Labor found that some of the employees were wrongly classified as exempt.

Is age discrimination hurting your career?

You've been dedicated to your career path for years, even decades. You have the education and the practical experience to make you an expert in your field. You are years from being ready or willing to retire, but you also feel like you've hit a brick wall in your career. Could you be experiencing age discrimination? You may hesitate to assume discrimination, but age discrimination is very common in a number of industries. Even if your boss or manager is as old or older than you are, he or she could still have unhealthy ideas about the contributions of experienced and older employees.

Constructive discharge and workplace discrimination

When dealing with a case of employment discrimination in New Jersey, one potential factor to keep in mind is constructive discharge. Constructive discharge generally refers to employees who have resigned from their job in circumstances in which they had no other choice but to leave their employment.

Court rules arbitration not necessary in dispute

Three certified nursing assistants filed a claim against their employer dealing with how overtime pay was calculated and whether they were paid for their meal breaks. Their employer said that the employees had to go through arbitration because the dispute was related to a collective bargaining agreement. The U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey rejected the arguments of the employer, and the employer appealed to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. The higher court affirmed the decision of the lower court.
