Many workplace discrimination claims filed by disabled people

New Jersey workers may be interested in learning that a disproportionate percentage of workplace discrimination claims are filed by the disabled population. According to a recent report put out by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), more than 30 percent of workplace discrimination claims in 2016 involved charges of disability-based discrimination.

Damages for emotional distress in FLSA cases

Employers in New Jersey and around the country can face significant penalties for retaliating against workers who have made harassment or discrimination claims, and a ruling by a federal appeals court indicates that sanctioning employees who have filed lawsuits over unpaid wages or overtime could also be costly. The ruling, which was handed down by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, allowed a maintenance worker to recover damages for emotional distress in a Fair Labor Standards Act case.
