We Will Help You Understand The Law Against Discrimination
The Law Against Discrimination prohibits an employer for discrimination against, harassing or terminating an employee based upon his race, sex, age, religious beliefs or if the individual has certain disabilities but can do the job. These are considered protected classes that are afforded special protections in the workplace with regard to hiring, treatment on the job and termination.
The creation of a “hostile work environment” or “failure to provide a reasonable accommodation” is a frequent base for filing suit. Also, employees are sometimes victimized by “sexual harassment” or “racial” or “age” discrimination for which legal representation is needed.
Whistleblower Regulations: The Conscientious Employee Protection Act
The Conscientious Employee Protection Act is New Jersey’s “whistleblower” law. This law affords certain rights and protections to individuals who refuse to participate in, complain about or report conduct at their workplace which they believe is illegal or harmful to co-workers or the public. This law is recourse for those who are punished or terminated for taking such actions.
At Scirocco Law, PC, our attorneys have successfully represented litigants in the federal and state courts throughout New Jersey.
Wage Theft Act
When New Jersey enacted Wage Theft Act (WTA) in 2019, it was considered one of the toughest wage theft laws in the country. The WTA not only includes expanded protections for employees, but also increases employer penalties. Both employers and employees should be aware of the WTA’s implications, as well as other important wage and hour issues.
