This is not workers comp. It is more in the field of wage and hour compliance. Google the NJ Department of Labor. Go to the tab on Worker Protection and wage and hour compliance will pop up. That will make for good background reading. if you don't have the answer after that contact a wage...Read more »
I am a relatively new employee. I started working about a month ago. That is around the time in which I began getting pain in my arms and strong numbness in my fingers. I waited a little bit to see if this was something that required me to get adjusted to or if it was temporary, but as I went to... Read more »
It's hard to say from what you described as to whether you have a solid WC case. The best thing to do is to report your experience to Costco and ask to be seen by a company authorized doctor. You have to get treatment through Costco, although there are exceptions. A lot depends upon the job...Read more »
I reside in NJ where but i was doing work in NY, where a county specific license was required to do home improvement. I have a court date and i need to know what kind of lawyer i should find. I didn't qualify for a public defender.

Both your boss and the undocumented worked are in violation of Federal law. It is unwise to post anything further about this in a public forum monitored by law enforcement. There is no attorney-client privilege online and this situation is far beyond the scope of this forum.

Lastly you may not just be able to collect from your employer but also the person that hit you, if...Read more »
Once we submitted their invoice for payment, they told us the check was ready, but they wouldn’t release it without proof of workman’s comp insurance. Is this legal? They allowed us to perform the work before ever requesting proof of any type of insurance?
Probably a lot of money but to tell you exactly a lawyer would need to know exactly your injury (Complete Medical Diagnosis) and whether anyone other third party is responsible for your injury such as the ladder company because you were on a ladder and the ladder rung broke. I suggest you seek out...Read more »
