NEW JERSEY EMPLOYMENT LAWYERS
Discrimination is repugnant, immoral and illegal. It can ruin lives, destroy families and harm our communities. New Jersey law protects employees from suffering discrimination and harassment at the workplace by providing for significant penalties to employers who ignore their legal obligations to prevent from occurring and remediating when it happens. Our firm fights for New Jersey employees’ right to a discrimination free workplace by holding employers responsible for the harm caused when they do not fulfill their obligations in stopping workplace discrimination.
New Jersey employment law prohibits many different forms of discriminatory business practices or acts such as sexual harassment, failure to reasonably accommodate, unlawful retaliation and hostile work environments. Discrimination threatens the foundation of a free democratic society. Employers who allow discrimination to take place cause aggrieved employees to suffer devastating personal hardships, irreparable emotional trauma, and unplanned instability to the family unit. In furtherance of New Jersey’s strong public policy to eradicate the cancer of discrimination, our laws provide for strict penalties to employers who do not play by the rules and allow employees to suffer from acts of discrimination, harassment and retaliation. Discrimination is unacceptable in all forms and must be fought against vigorously. We work with our clients to hold employers responsible for discrimination in the workplace.
If you are the victim of discrimination, harassment or have been unlawfully terminated from your employment, our New Jersey employment lawyers are here to assist you in standing up for your right to a workplace free of discrimination.Tenacious Litigators

New Jersey provides some of the strongest legal protections of any state in the country.
