Positive Experience I had a very positive experience working with Lisa and would recommend her to others who need a staunch advocate and supporter. She listened carefully to the circumstances of my complaint against a former employer and quickly grasped the details, concluding that I had a case worthy of pursuit. She is very professional and meticulous. Her written letters did a great job of capturing the facts and explaining the essence of our case. I appreciated that she asked for my input and respectfully listened to it and took it under advisement. The overall effort took longer than I expected, but Lisa remained steadfast and encouraging throughout, even when my confidence sometimes wavered. It felt good to know she was in my corner. She was thorough in her research and very clear and articulate in her status updates. It was evident that she remained consistently focused on my case. It was very easy to maintain the thread of our conversations throughout the entire multi-month process. I never wondered where things stood. This extended to her precise accounting and invoicing. Though I suspect this is a customary practice, I nevertheless found it very helpful. It served more than one purpose. It provided a detailed list of actions completed and a glimpse into her thoroughness, and it also inspired confidence that she was leaving no stone unturned in her fight to win my case. Thanks to Lisa, we achieved a desirable outcome!

Legal Answers
15 Questions Answered
Q. Hi, I have been audited by the NJ Dep. of Labor and they have concluded sub-contractor does not meet the requirements
A: It sounds like the NJDOL determined that there was insufficient proof that the subcontractor was an independent business under the ABC test. This case will give you a good understanding of the legal issues https://www.njcourts.gov/system/files/court-opinions/2022/a_7_21.pdf

It may be worthwhile for you to hire an employment attorney to assess if you have any defenses to this determination.
Q. Can an employer require me to sign a non compete agreement after I have already resigned? I am in food services.
A: An employee cannot withhold an employee's check for this reason in NJ. If this occurs you should file a wage claim with NJ Department of Labor. An employee has no obligation to sign such a document after resignation.
Q. Can a person be discriminated because of their religion at their place of employment.
A: It is unlawful to discriminate against an employee based on their religion under both federal, NY and NJ discrimination law. You should consult with an employment attorney to discuss your matter further and get advice on how to address this.
