Why You Need an Employment Discrimination Law Firm

Employees in New Jersey are protected against discrimination by several laws, including:

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII)
  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA)
  • Equal Pay Act (EPA)
  • Genetic Information Nondisclosure Act (GINA)
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA
  • New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD)
  • New Jersey Family Leave Act

These laws prohibit employers from discriminating against employees and job applicants based on protected characteristics such as race, color, national origin, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, and family/caregiver status. In short, employment decisions – hiring, compensating, promoting, firing – cannot be based on a protected characteristic.

Despite these protections, fighting back against employment discrimination is challenging. Employers have wide latitude when making employment decisions and know how to disguise their discriminatory motives as legitimate business decisions.

For this reason, it is essential to have an experienced employment discrimination attorney on your side. You can depend on NJ Employment Lawyers to handle your case with diligence and care and protect your right to earn a living.

Protecting Employees in New Jersey Against Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment is not only heinous and offensive, it is considered an unlawful form of discrimination under Title VII and the NJLAD. Unfortunately, sexual harassment remains a problem in workplaces throughout New Jersey, and anyone can be impacted, regardless of their gender or sexual identity.

Sexual harassment may involve unwanted sexual advances by a supervisor (“quid pro quo” harassment) or offensive comments or conduct by anyone in the workplace – supervisors, coworkers, clients, vendors – that are severe and pervasive enough to create a hostile work environment or result in an adverse employment action.

At NJ Employment Lawyers, we believe that everyone has a right to a harassment-free workplace and will do everything in our power to protect your rights.

New Jersey Whistleblower Lawyer

All employees in New Jersey have a right to complain about and report potential wrongdoing by their employers. Despite federal and state laws that protect employees, contractors, and agents, blowing the whistle on an employer’s illegal and/or ethical conduct takes courage.

Whether you believe your employer has been engaging in illegal activities or you have experienced whistleblower retaliation, our employment lawyers have the skills and experience to protect your rights.

We have comprehensive knowledge of applicable whistleblower blower laws such as the federal False Claims Act (FCA) and the New Jersey Conscientious Employee Employee Protection Act (CEPA) and will work strategically to help you obtain just compensation. You can depend on us to protect your rights, your reputation, and your livelihood.

Wrongful Termination/Retaliation

New Jersey is an “at-will” employment state, which means that an employer or employee may terminate the employment relationship at any time, with or without cause. However, employers cannot terminate employees for illegal or discriminatory reasons.

In addition, employers cannot legally retaliate against employees who complain about discrimination or harassment or who exercise their legal rights. Employment retaliation occurs when an employer takes an adverse employment action against an employee, such as firing, demoting, or disciplining.

New Jersey Severance Agreement Attorneys

In New Jersey, it is common for employers to require employees who are being terminated to sign a severance agreement. These agreements typically offer the employee severance pay in exchange for waiving their legal rights.

If you have been presented with a severance agreement, don’t sign it until you speak with NJ Employment Lawyers. We will take the time to review the agreement, negotiate a comprehensive severance package, and make sure your legal rights are protected.
