Introduction to NJ Employment Law

Need an Employment Law Attorney in New Jersey?

At Hanlon Niemann & Wright, we handle most labor and employment-related matters on behalf of employers and employees who work in and/or are headquartered and/or have a substantial presence within the state of New Jersey.

Employment law in this state has become complex. Some laws are cutting edge (both good and bad) and progressive (again, both good and bad) while others are outdated and detrimental to either the employer or the employee, or both. We created this employment law page to help all interested parties better understand their rights and obligations in the workplace.

Take a look at the table of contents found on the right side of this page to better understand the subject matter of this website. The topics and areas of the law addressed are diverse. Written in simple English, our videos and blogs address frequently asked questions and topics of real life employers and employees. We think you’ll gain a lot of information to better evaluate where you stand in the workplace. And of course, should you need advice and/or legal representation, we are here for you. Call or email me personally, Fredrick P. Niemann, Esq., at, toll-free (855) 376-5291 to schedule a face-to-face, video (Zoom or other video conferencing system) or telephone conference call. It’s my pleasure to be of assistance to you.

I didn’t know who to turn to for legal advice. There are so many lawyers, but who was the right one for me? I wanted someone who would listen to me and someone I could afford. I knew I couldn’t afford to be without an attorney and then I remembered an old cliché…”you get what you pay for”. But there can be a difference between high price and high value. With Fredrick P. Niemann, I got a terrific attorney who really worked with me. He was with me every step of the way. His fees were fair and our interpersonal relationship great. I would recommend Fredrick P. Niemann to anyone who wants a caring attorney.

Fred is an amazing and dynamic person. I have attended a few of his work shops and CEU events over the years and his interactive discussions have been both educational and entertaining. He is one of the few lawyers out there that I do trust and does whatever he says he is going to (Accountability) who ever I have referred his way has always thanked me for connecting them and this is why I continue to work w/ Fred. Great person, excellent ethics, and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend him.
