State and federal employment laws that protect the rights of employees
Employment law is an especially difficult, fast-developing area of law. In the average year, for example, over 200 published and unpublished cases involve New Jersey’s Law Against Discrimination. Literally, thousands of cases nationwide involve federal employment statutes. These cases can often involve large sums of money, including back pay, penalties, and other damages. New Jersey’s Law Against Discrimination (LAD) forbids harassment or discrimination based on race, creed, color, national origin, nationality, ancestry, age, sex (including pregnancy), familial status, marital status, domestic partnership status, affectional or sexual orientation, atypical hereditary cellular or blood trait, genetic information, liability for military service, and mental or physical disability, perceived disability, and AIDS and HIV status. The LAD prohibits discrimination in employment, housing, places of public accommodation, credit, and business contracts.
The Conscientious Employee Protection Act (also known as the Whistleblower Act) prohibits retaliation against an employee who has spoken out against unlawful or unethical conduct in the workplace.
Most of our cases involve claims under either the Law Against Discrimination or the Whistleblower Act. However, our New Jersey sexual harassment attorneys also handle cases arising from both state and federal laws discrimination and wage and hour laws as well as disciplinary actions against public employees including:
- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
