Employees have protection against discrimination on the basis of race, sex, religion, disability, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, veteran status, and other characteristics. Employers cannot take any unfavorable action against you based on any of these protected characteristics, and cannot tolerate a hostile working environment. We help employees who have been the victims of discrimination get the justice they deserve.
Regardless of your workplace, you have rights as an employee. Employment laws are meant to regulate the relationships between employers and employees. We help people across New Jersey and New York fight back when an employment issue arises.
Are you facing discrimination? We have a track record of getting victims justice. You might be afraid to come forward if you’ve experienced sexual harassment, but we will help you bring this issue to light and advocate for your legal rights. If you have faced retaliation in any form for blowing the whistle on you company’s illegal activity we will support you in taking legal action.
Sexual harassment makes victims feel small, ashamed, and afraid to come forward. If you have been the victim of sexual harassment, it is not your fault. We have handled instances of everything from unwanted comments to sexual assault and are sensitive to the special needs of the sexual harassment plaintiff.
Whistleblower laws protect employees from retaliation if they protest employer practices that are against the law, regulation, or public policy. If you have been terminated, demoted, transferred, given a pay cut, or even subjected to a hostile work environment because you complained about or refused to comply with your employer’s illegal activity, we can help litigate your whistleblower claim.
