About Us...

The New Jersey Chapter of the Labor and Employment Relations Association (LERA) is a unique organization of professionals from New Jersey and contiguous states who are interested in labor & employment relations and human resource management. The chapter includes members from the management, labor, neutral (including arbitrators and mediators), government, and academic fields.

The New Jersey Chapter holds six dinner meetings a year where members listen to distinguished speakers and share their knowledge and experience. The New Jersey Chapter is affiliated with the Labor and Employment Relations Association (formerly the Industrial Relations Research Association), which sponsors national meetings for practitioners and academics and publishes books, conference proceedings, and periodicals that are designed for a wide audience.
