Policies & Handbooks

At KSB Law, we strive to ensure our clients are compliant with existing rules and regulations to avoid the risk of litigation and related workplace challenges. We draft, review, and revise policies and employment handbooks — key areas, especially in light of such recent legislation as 2018 New Jersey Sick Leave Act and 2018 Diane B. Allen Equal Pay Act.

Our attorneys are well-versed in all areas of federal and New Jersey employment laws relating to the discrimination, harassment, and retaliation of specific protected classes that need to be covered. In states such as New Jersey, there are additional protections with which employers must comply, including such areas as harassment, retaliation, wage and hour, overtime, wage payment, whistleblowing, medical and family leaves of absence, and sick leave.
