Employment Immigration

Employment immigration laws in New Jersey are primarily governed by federal regulations set by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the Department of Labor (DOL). These laws apply uniformly across all states, including New Jersey.

Here is some information you should know when applying for employment immigration.

Visa Categories

Individuals aspiring to work in New Jersey typically require a valid visa allowing legal employment in the United States. Common employment-based visa categories encompass:

– H-1B Visa: Designed for specialty occupation workers.

L-1 Visa: Intended for intracompany transferees.

TN Visa: Applicable to Canadian and Mexican professionals under the USMCA agreement.

E-2 Visa: Reserved for treaty investors.

O Visa: Granted to individuals with extraordinary abilities or achievements in their field.

J-1 Visa: Facilitates exchange visitors, including interns and trainees.

Employment Authorization Document (EAD)

Certain non-immigrant visa holders, such as H-4 visa dependents of H-1B visa holders, may be eligible to apply for an EAD, granting them the right to work in the United States legally.

New Jersey State-Specific Laws

New Jersey may implement distinct employment regulations affecting immigrants, encompassing labor laws, minimum wage regulations, and worker protection rights applicable to all employees, irrespective of immigration status.

Anti-Discrimination Laws

Federal and state laws prohibit discrimination based on nationality or immigration status. Employers in New Jersey are generally prohibited from discriminating against employees or job applicants based on their immigration status.


Like many other states, New Jersey may mandate specific employers to utilize the E-Verify system, an online platform verifying the employment eligibility of newly hired personnel based on their immigration status.

Labor Certification

Certain employment-based immigrant visas, such as the EB-2 and EB-3 categories, may necessitate a labor certification process through the Department of Labor. This procedure ensures that hiring foreign workers will not negatively impact the U.S. job market.

State Agencies and Resources

Immigrants seeking employment in New Jersey can benefit from engaging with state agencies and resources providing information and assistance related to employment issues. The New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development is a valuable resource.

Immigration Attorneys

Given the complexity of immigration laws, many immigrants in New Jersey seek legal assistance from immigration attorneys who can facilitate visa applications and work permits and address various immigration-related matters.

It’s essential to note that immigration laws are subject to change. Therefore, consulting an immigration attorney or visiting the USCIS website is advisable to access the most up-to-date information and guidance tailored to individual circumstances. Furthermore, the political and policy landscape concerning immigration may evolve, influencing immigration regulations and enforcement.
