Employment Attorneys In Swedesboro, New Jersey

The New Jersey State Wage and Hour Law and the federal Fair Labor Standards Act protect most workers in Swedesboro, New Jersey. While statutory employees must be paid a minimum wage of $7.25 per hour under federal law, New Jersey mandates a minimum wage of $10 per hour. Since the state’s minimum wage is higher, employers in the state are required to pay the higher state minimum wage rate to their eligible workers.

Employees who are paid tipped wages must earn at least $10 per hour when their tips and hourly wages are combined. Non-exempt workers must also receive overtime pay for every hour that they work above 40 in a workweek.

If your employer has failed to pay you the minimum wage or overtime compensation that you deserve, you may have a valid reason to file a wage and hour claim against your employer. The employment lawyers at Swartz Swidler can assess your case and explain the options that you have.

Whistleblower Attorneys in Swedesboro, New Jersey

The state and federal governments rely on workers who bravely come forward to report the illegal conduct of their employers. This is because the illegal actions of employers might otherwise go undiscovered without the help of whistleblowers. Under the state and federal whistleblowers, workers who report the unlawful actions of their employers to government agencies and those who participate in investigations are protected from retaliation. If your employer has retaliated against you for reporting illegal activities or for cooperating with an investigation, the employment law attorneys at Swartz Swidler may help you to file a retaliation claim. If you have knowledge that has not been publicized about your employer’s large-scale fraud against the government, we might help you to file a qui tam lawsuit to hold your employer accountable
