NJ Discrimination Lawyer | New Jersey Discrimination Attorney

By Tom McKinney
NJ Employment Attorney

Are you looking for a NJ Discrimination Lawyer?  Our firm can assist you with any claim for discrimination in the State of New Jersey.  We have handled hundreds of discrimination cases throughout New Jersey on behalf of victims of age discrimination, pregnancy discrimination, race discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination and many other protected characteristics under the law.

The discrimination laws are frequently changing in New Jersey, therefore it is important that you hire an experienced NJ Discrimination Lawyer to assist you with your claim.  It is illegal in New Jersey for an employer to subject an employee to an adverse employment action (i.e. termination, suspension, demotion, reduction in pay, reduction in duties) as a result of a protected characteristic.  The protected characteristics currently protected in New Jersey under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination are disability, race, age, sex/gender, color, creed, nationality, national origin, ancestry, pregnancy, marital status, sexual orientation, perceived sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, status of domestic partnership or civil union, blood traits, genetic information and military service.

If you believe that you have been the victim of discrimination in the workplace in New Jersey, you should contact us to schedule a free consultation with a NJ Discrimination Lawyer.  We will explain to you through the free consultation whether you have a potential case against your current or former employer and will explain to you how the entire litigation process works if we believe that you have a claim for discrimination.  The key to our review of your potential case is to make sure that we will be able to prove intentional discrimination based on a protected characteristic.  This can be a difficult thing to prove and we usually rely on comparator evidence to prove a case of discrimination, since it is rare to have any direct evidence by way of an email or comment (although it does still happen).

Please call a NJ Discrimination Lawyer today to start the process.  For more information on discrimination law, visit another section for NJ Discrimination Lawyers.
