Q: if a manger within a company bad mouths an employee to another manger within that company is that considered harassment?

1 Answer | Asked in Business Law, Employment Discrimination and Employment Law for New Jersey on
Answered on Dec 2, 2016

In New Jersey employment law, something can only be harassment if the reason it happened was unlawful, such as if it is because of your age, race, gender, national origin, disability or another legally protected category. In addition, to be legally actionable harassment has to be severe (very bad) or pervasive (very frequent). While it sounds like it was unfair, I don't have enough information to evaluate whether what happened to you was harassment under New Jersey law.

The answers to your questions depend on multiple factors.

Q: I want to start a business that makes money fast, like Amway. Is a 'pyramid' set-up like this legal?

1 Answer | Asked in Business Law for New Jersey on
Answered on May 10, 2011

Well, your question is a little bit hazy. Amway is a legal business, but if it is "like" Amway, there may be some differences from Amway that you propose that make it unlawful. Can you please be more specific about your precise model? If you want to maintain confidentiality, perhaps it is best that you reach out to a private attorney to discuss this matter. Good luck!

Q: What kind of attorney for NJ Office of licensing administrative hearing

1 Answer | Asked in Business Law for New Jersey on
Answered on May 5, 2011

It appears that any business attorney or attorney familiar with administrative law may assist you in this hearing. An attorney would need to see your notice of violation. Changing the factors really seems like a lobbying activity, not necessarily a legal activity. But you need to argue for compliance in this instance, it seems. Good luck. Atty.
