TEMP WORKERS OFTEN TARGETS OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT

The state of New Jersey employs more temporary workers than almost any other state in the country, thanks in significant part to the work done at the Port of Newark. Until recently, it appears that this "invisible" workforce has been disproportionately victimized. In addition to significantly larger numbers of workplace deaths and injuries, many of these workers, mostly female, have also been exposed to sexual harassment in the workplace.

FORMER NEW JERSEY PROSECUTOR SUED FOR SEXUAL HARASSMENT

A civil sexual harassment lawsuit was filed against former Mercer County prosecutor Joseph Bocchini in January, 2017. The complaint, filed by an anonymous subordinate, alleges that Bocchini repeatedly used lewd and suggestive language, and forced himself upon her while working as her supervisor.

WRONGFUL DEATH IN NEW JERSEY--SOME BASICS

When your loved one has died because of the wrongful act of another person, the grief can paralyze you. But you have a right to pursue compensation for your losses-for the loss of support, the loss of companionship and guidance, and any out-of-pocket expenses incurred as a result of the death. Here are some basic guidelines to help you understand and protect your rights in a wrongful death action in New Jersey.

THE TYPES OF DAMAGES IN A WRONGFUL DEATH LAWSUIT

CAMDEN COUNTY SUPERINTENDENT FACES SEXUAL HARASSMENT INVESTIGATION

School Superintendent Jason Eitner has been put on paid leave until the end of December, as the Waterford Township Board of Education looks into allegations that he engaged in both sexual harassment and ageism. Eitner has been in the post for about 18 months.

WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIMS--WHO CAN SUE

Under New Jersey law, when a person dies because of the carelessness of another person-in a motor vehicle accident, a slip and fall or a construction site accident, for example-there's a legal right to hold the wrongdoer accountable for financial losses suffered because of the death. But who has a right to bring a wrongful death action? Will the law allow anyone who had a relationship with the deceased file a lawsuit?

NEW JERSEY'S STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS ON PERSONAL INJURY

When you have a legal claim based on someone else's wrongful conduct, whether it's the failure to perform according to the terms of a contract, or a lawsuit for injuries sustained in an accident, you must file your claim within a specific period of time or it will be barred. There are a number of reasons for this rule, known as the statute of limitations. It helps ensure that evidence doesn't get lost and that memories don't fade. It also ensures that a person doesn't live for a long period of time with a potential claim hanging over his or her head.

NEW JERSEY SUPREME COURT REINSTATES VERDICT OF OUT-OF-STATE CLAIMANT

The New Jersey Supreme Court has unanimously ruled in favor of an Alabama man who filed a lawsuit for injuries caused by the prescription drug Accutane. The court's ruling reinstates a $25 million judgment that Andrew McCarrell, an Alabama resident, was awarded by a New Jersey court in 2010. Accutane's manufacturer, Roche, had successfully appealed that award to the New Jersey Appellate Division in 2015.
