Employment Rights for People with Disabilities in New Jersey

 
If you face disability discrimination at work or when you apply for a job, you may have rights under federal and state laws. The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal law that protects employees of most private employers. The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD) is a state law that protects employees of state and local government and employees of most private employers. The Rehabilitation Act is a federal law that protects employees of most federal agency employers and also protects some employees of other organizations that receive federal funds. These laws can protect people with disabilities on the job and when they apply for jobs. They also provide a right to reasonable accommodations to help people with disabilities at work.
