About Usmaan Sleemi, Esq.



When Can You Sue an Employer in New Jersey?

When an employer breaks state or federal laws, an employee may be able to recover compensation by filing a lawsuit. For example, you may have grounds to sue your employer if you were a victim of wrongful termination, sexual harassment, or workplace discrimination. Our employment law firm can determine whether you have a case, then help you pursue an aggressive strategy for recovering the maximum compensation.


Wrongful Termination

Wrongful termination occurs when an employer fires an employee because he or she belongs to a protected class, or because the employee exercises their legal rights. For example, it is unlawful to terminate an employee because of race or religion, or because the employee engages in whistleblowing. If you were unlawfully terminated due to discrimination, or as an act of retaliation against you, financial compensation may be available.


Unpaid Wages

You deserve to be paid for the work you perform. If your employer owes you unpaid overtime or other wages, speak with a New Jersey employment law attorney to exercise your rights as an employee. Our firm can work strategically to ensure that you receive the full wages your labor has entitled you to.


Hostile Work Environment

A hostile work environment can make performing your job impossible. Moreover, your employer may be violating the law by creating or allowing a hostile environment to develop. If you were harassed or discriminated against at work, we can determine whether your legal rights were violated, and help you fight for fair compensation.
