Equal employment opportunity

Everyone who comes to court should be treated with respect. The New Jersey Courts’ Office of Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action (EEO/AA Office) addresses complaints of harassment and discrimination by or against court employees, court users, or others involved in the court process. The EEO/AA Office also works to maintain a diverse workforce.

  • The EEO/AA Office cannot not give legal advice.
  • The EEO/AA Office cannot interfere in a court case or a judge’s decision.
  • The EEO/AA Office cannot change the judge assigned to your case.
