Practical Knowledge. Bottom Line Results.
Consultation - A phone call away (free and unlimited)
Why operate in New Jersey's rapidly changing workplace alone? Regardless of the amount of time spent on addressing a specific employee relation issue or problem, each member receives prompt information and guidance on personnel policies, benefits administration and human resource practices from a professionally staffed HelpLine. Top HelpLine categories typically include FMLA, Wage and Hour, Benefits Administration, Harassment, Immigration and more.
EANJ does not render legal advice, legal opinion or engage in the practice of law. For such advice or opinion the services of an attorney competent in the areas of labor and/or employment law should be retained.
Employer Health Care – quality, choice, cost effectiveness (eligibility requirements)
Rather than simply pay skyrocketing premiums to an insurance company, EANJ members enjoy the same choice and prices as a big corporation with bargaining power. Through a Multiple Employer Welfare Arrangement (MEWA), EANJ members can provide exceptional health care coverage to their employees at substantial savings. A MEWA is a self-insured group benefits plan that permits small and mid-sized employers to have the same choice of plans and premium savings as a big corporation with thousands of employees.
