Discrimination Attorney in Mullica Hill, NJ

Discrimination is an ugly reality. That is why both state and federal laws protect qualified individuals from discrimination in various aspects of employment, including hiring, discipline, pay, promotion, and any other terms and conditions of employment. Discrimination can be present in a range of unlawful acts, including hostile work environment, sexual harassment, workplace harassment, demotion, and other overt or subtle acts. If you are being discriminated against, it is important to discuss your situation with an employee rights attorney. If you are an employer, you need to stop it in its tracks.
