U.S. EEOC Select Task Force Releases Important and Timely Study of Workplace Harassment

Earlier this summer, the EEOC’s Select Task Force on the Study of Harassment in the Workplace issued its long-anticipated Report, in four-part format and an Executive Summary that we link here for your information and guidance.  The Summary provides a superb and convenient overview of the 88-page report. Here are some of the Report’s highlights:

“In NJ, under what circumstances may I forcibly emancipate my own child?”

Current New Jersey law says that when a child reaches the age of 19, and absent specific exceptions for college education or disability, s/he is presumptively emancipated.

“How should my NJ divorce attorney help with my Family Part Case Information Statement?”

In a contested divorce, the NJ Family Part Case Information Statement (CIS) is one of the most important tools for the trial court, the parties, their legal counsel, their mediator, and/or their arbitrator to consider. In many divorce cases, an attorney hands a blank CIS to the client – or sends a hyperlink as we

NJ Supreme Court to Employers: You Can’t Cut Discrimination Claims Deadlines by Contract

The New Jersey Supreme Court has sent a loud and clear message to employers in our State: employment agreements cannot shorten time limits for discrimination claims. In Rodriguez v.

Employers Take Note: Philadelphia Bans Credit History Use in Most Employment Decisions!
