We fight against Workplace Discrimination and Retaliation
Discrimination can occur in any phase of employment, including job postings and hiring, compensation, job assignments, advancement, discipline and termination. Employment discrimination can be subtle. It is important to document the unequal treatment and a pattern of prejudiced language or actions. In many cases, workplace discrimination and workplace harassment claims are intertwined. We will pursue all actions against employers.

Our NJ employment law firm represents clients who have been:
- Sexually harassed

- Forced to endure a hostile work environment
- Treated differently than others doing comparable work
- Fired or penalized because of whistle-blowing activities

Areas of Practice
If you are a whistleblower you are protected from retaliation under New Jersey’s Whistleblower Law called the Conscientious Employee Protection Act (CEPA). CEPA prohibits employers from disciplining an employee because he/she has “blown the whistle” by (1) bringing to light employer conduct that may be illegal or fraudulent; (2) cooperating in a public body’s (local, state, or federal) investigation into the employer’s conduct; or (3) refusing to go along with employer conduct that may be illegal or that may pose a threat to the public health, safety or welfare. If you find yourself in this situation and feel that your employer may be taking adverse employment actions against you, you may qualify for the protections afforded by New Jersey’s whistleblower laws.
Workplace discrimination can take many forms but generally New Jersey’s Law Against Discrimination was designed to protect employees from employers who take adverse employment action against them (fire, demote, alter pay) and/or create a hostile work environment that is severe and pervasive specifically because of the employee’s status in a protected class. Put another way, the employer’s actions against the employee cannot be motivated by employee’s age, gender, race, religion, ancestry or disability, just to name a few. This law also protects employees from retaliation for disclosing workplace discrimination. If you feel you have been discriminated against by your employer, we may able to help.
