Amended Whistleblower bill to expand NJ workers’ protections

Residents of New Jersey may be aware that our State has one of the strongest whistleblower laws in the nation.

“How can I possibly cooperate with my X2B?” The role of constructive problem solving in divorce

INTRODUCTION: A TALE OF TWO WOLVES This article is built upon my 33 years of experience in divorce litigation, mediation, arbitration, and, most recently, collaborative law.

Employers are required to provide a workplace free of sexual harassment.

People expect to be treated fairly and respectfully by their employers. One expectation, created by federal and New Jersey law, is that they will work in an environment that is free from sexual harassment. Unfortunately, not every workplace complies with these mandates.
