A great many of our cases involve discrimination and retaliation. We are heavily involved in cases of discrimination based on race, disability, gender, national origin, and ethnicity. Additionally, many of our clients have been retaliated against: for complaining of their employers’ illegal practices, for applying for Worker’s Compensation, and for taking leave under the FMLA.
We also represent numerous employees and former employees who have faced retaliation for whistleblowing because they disclosed to a supervisor or public body, or testified before a public body about, or objected to or refused to participate in, an activity, practice, or policy of the employer, which they reasonably believed violated a law, rule, or regulation; or was fraudulent or criminal; or was against a clear mandate of public policy related to public health, safety or welfare or protection of the environment. Other employees and former employees faced retaliation for taking leave under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act or the New Jersey Family Leave Act. Others were fired or demoted or otherwise retaliated against because they applied for worker’s compensation. We also represent individuals whose employers retaliated against them for complaining about discrimination within the workplace.
