Retaliation and Whistleblower Claims
Retaliation is any punishment meted out to an employee because of engaging in a legally protected activity. Most workers face retaliation for making whistleblower claims or pursuing workers’ compensation.
Various factors constitute employment discrimination. If an employer terminates, refuses to hire, or prevents you from advancing on discriminatory bases, you may have grounds to pursue a lawsuit. Such grounds include religion, gender, nationality, or disability.
New Jersey state employment laws protect you from negative treatment due to protected characteristics. Frequent cases of this nature include sexual harassment. This includes requests for sexual favors, unwelcome advances, and physical or verbal harassment of a sexual kind.
Unpaid Overtime or Wages
State and federal laws regulate the hours and wages of any employee. You are entitled to a minimum wage and pay for any overtime, which constitutes hours above a 40-hour workweek.
