New Jersey Employment Laws
Created by FindLaw's team of legal writers and editors | Last reviewed June 20, 2016
State employment laws identify minimum wage and pay day requirements, and regulate issues like labor union membership and the right to organize. New Jersey has its own set of state employment laws. For instance, the current minimum wage is $8.25 per hour, with an automatic increase should the federal minimum wage rise above the state rate. Like most states, overtime is required for time worked beyond 40 hours in a week in New Jersey. There are also weekly payday requirements for manual workers.
