What are New Jersey's minimum wage laws?

Almost every state including New Jersey (NJ) has a minimum wage in place. This amount is often characterized as the lowest possible hourly rate that an individual can receive for the work that they perform. While this is generally the case, there are some exceptions to this rule. When a state has no minimum wage, that minimum defaults to the federal minimum wage. Individuals who work in certain sectors may be entitled to less pay. Businesses with a smaller staff may be allowed to compensate workers at a lower rate as well.

New Jersey employees and contractors can recover unpaid wages

There are two primary types of workers here in New Jersey and elsewhere in the country: contractors and employees. Both hourly and contract workers have different options available that they can pursue if they don't get paid.

Paid work breaks are mandated for some New Jersey workers

Many workers in Burlington and elsewhere throughout the state of New Jersey may assume that their employer is required to provide them with a lunch or dinner break or simply a period of rest after working a set amount of hours. New Jersey law doesn't require business owners to offer such breaks to most of their employees though. They're only required to offer these types of accommodations to minors.

There is more than 1 type of off-the-clock work

Working off the clock typically occurs when your employer requests that you complete work-related activity without compensation. As tempted as you may be to comply, as you want to show that you're a good team player, it can quickly turn into something you didn't sign up for.
