Misclassification can cost workers their rights

Many New Jersey workers are entitled to employee rights like a mandatory minimum wage and overtime compensation. Employment laws also allow workers to claim workers' compensation benefits if they are injured and unemployment benefits if they are laid off. However, workers that are classified as independent contractors are not entitled to these same rights.

How to fight age discrimination when looking for work

Many older workers may face age discrimination when they are searching for a New Jersey job even though many of the beliefs about both older and younger workers are erroneous. Despite this, the AARP reported that more than 64 percent of people had faced age discrimination. In order to combat this discrimination, workers may want to make sure that they look polished both on LinkedIn profiles and in person, but there are a number of other steps they can take.

The EEOC and national origin discrimination

New Jersey is ethnically diverse and so are its workplaces. Unfortunately, discrimination based on the national origins of workers is still common around the country. In November 2016, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued a guidance for enforcement actions involving complaints of national origin discrimination.
