Only the Delaware River separates NJ,PA and DE geographically,
but they are worlds apart in their laws regulating the workplace.
NJ places greater burdens and restrictions on employers, while
providing employees with many additional remedies and causes of
action. PA provides employees with fewer causes of action, but does
present greater risks and liabilities as to some areas of
employment law -- such as wage payment and collection. And it's a
"small wonder" that DE, just down the river, has its own set of
rules, too. Further muddying the waters are the procedural
and administrative differences in initiating employment
discrimination claims in each jurisdiction.
This panel discussion identified key areas of concern and helps counsel to companies with operations in all three states navigate the variations in state law.
