What is the role of New Jersey’s Division of Consumer Affairs?

New Jersey wants to protect its consumers from the fraudulent practices of some businesses. To combat this issue, the state created the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs. It is important that consumers have a place to report any misconduct or other issues they are having with a business. The Division of Consumer Affairs also conducts investigations into potential fraudulent practices of businesses.

The Division of Consumer Affairs has different boards and committees for New Jersey’s various industries. There are committees for everything from interior design to plumbing to medical examiners to cosmetologists. Members of each committee are responsible for making sure all workers in that category have received the necessary licenses and certifications after completing required training and educational courses. These committees are valuable sources of information for those who are working in these industries. In addition, consumers can request a list of all licensed individuals in that line of work.

If a consumer needs to make a complaint against a company or a contractor, they should contact the Division of Consumer Affairs. If you believe that you have been taken advantage of by a contractor or another business you hired, you may want to file a complaint with the NJ Division of Consumer Affairs and then consult with an experienced consumer defense attorney who can provide you with assistance.
