Discrimination in Workplace

stop forclosureOne area of law that is of great concern to employers in New Jersey is New Jersey’s law against discrimination. This is one of the most powerful laws in favor of employees in the country. It covers not only discrimination but also harassment and retaliation against employees who have spoken out against discrimination or harassment. It’s a very costly kind of case to defend, and it can result in catastrophic damages to the employer. There is no way to bullet proof yourself against such claims, but you can protect yourself and at least make a good case for yourself by training your supervisors and their obligations under the law and also training the employees too. Have a clearly written anti-harassment policy and enforce it as even handedly as you can. Those are about the only ways you can protect yourself. You really can’t protect yourself against people doing stupid things on your dime when you’re not around to watch, but you can minimize the damage and put a stop to some of them at least.
