New Jersey Employment Lawyer
Employment law covers all rights and obligations within the employer-employee relationship -- whether current employees, job applicants, or former employees. It involves legal issues as diverse as discrimination, wrongful termination, wages and taxation, and workplace safety.
All employees have basic rights in the workplace -- including the right to privacy, fair compensation, and freedom from discrimination. A job applicant also has certain rights even before being hired. Those rights include the right to be free from discrimination based on age, gender, race, national origin, or religion during the hiring process. For example, a prospective employer cannot ask a job applicant certain family-related questions during the hiring process.
In most states, employees have a right to privacy in the workplace. This applies to her/his personal possessions, including handbags or briefcases, storage lockers accessible only by the employee, and private mail. Employees may also have a right to privacy in their telephone conversations or voicemail messages. However, employees have very limited rights to privacy in their e-mail messages and Internet usage while using the employer's computer system.
There are certain pieces of information that an employer may not seek out concerning a potential job applicant or employee. For example, an employer may not conduct a credit or background check of an employee or prospective employee unless the employer notifies the individual in writing and receives permission to do so.
