Veteran’s Rights in the NJ Workplace: What are they and how are they enforced?

Veterans of the United States Armed Forces are considered a vulnerable population, and the American public, through the U.S. Congress, protects them by law. Veterans and their would-be employers should know the rights of veterans are protected and how those rights are enforced in the workplace. Many laws protect the rights of veterans: the two

Changing Through Your Divorce: How Your NJ Divorce Lawyer Can Help or Hurt

When couples take the first steps toward divorce, they almost never consider that their choice of a divorce attorney can be instrumental in their journey of personal growth. Divorce is a long, arduous road for most couples, and the process can force one or both spouses to expand and learn in previously unimagined ways. A

Are Older Women Being Forced out of the NJ Workforce?

As the US population ages, the workforce also will age. It has been estimated there are one billion people on our planet over the age of 60, and that demographic is expected to double by 2050.

In 1986, Congress eliminated a mandatory age of retirement, and amended the Civil Rights Act to help workers over the age of 65. Unfortunately, history tells us that legal enactments do not guarantee equal treatment of citizens in any environment, including the workplace.

Beyond Newburgh: Obligation of NJ Divorced Parents to Pay for Shared Kids’ College Tuition and Other Expenses

In 1982, the NJ Supreme Court in Newburgh v. Arrigo ruled on a number of issues pertaining to divorce and remarriage, including the obligation of both parents to contribute to the cost of their children’s higher education. Since Newburgh, NJ trial and appellate courts have considered various aspects of financial obligations of parents to their adult children.

Social Media and Employer Restrictions: Crossing the Line in NJ Could Get You Fired

Everyone uses social media. Many businesses enjoy free publicity via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Many employees make their private lives public on social media platforms available to anyone with a computer or smartphone. This may never become a problem, but when an employee violates the employer’s prohibitions or restrictions on social media use, there could be trouble in River City.

A Surprisingly Strong Case for NJ Palimony

In 1976, in Marvin v. Marvin, the California Supreme Court ruled that actor Lee Marvin was financially obligated to support his live-in lover indefinitely, regardless of the fact they had never married. The term palimony was coined by one of the attorneys on the case. Today, while many New Jersey couples cohabit without the benefit of marriage, the law has evolved to protect the financially vulnerable partner when these relationships end, just as if a lawful marriage existed.

Why NJ Post-Nuptial Agreements are On the Rise

A post-nuptial agreement may seem like a less glamorous version of a pre-nuptial, but it carries equal importance. If a couple is married and did not execute a pre-marriage agreement regarding alimony and ownership of assets upon divorce, they still may create an agreement at any point during the marriage. Post-marriage changes in financial circumstances are often the driving force. Post-nuptial agreements have not been perceived as bearing the same weight as a pre-nup, but as they gain in popularity, the trend may change.

The Bathroom Law and the New Workplace Battleground

In the spring of 2015, the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued guidelines for employers delineating the specific requirements for gender identity and the use of restrooms. Since that statement went public, there has been a trend in many corporate offices towards gender-neutral restrooms.
