At-Will Employment in New Jersey

New Jersey is considered an at-will employment state. That means that absent a contract or other agreement, your employment can be terminated at any time for any reason whatsoever. For example, your boss is a Yankees fan and you are a Red Sox Fan, your boss can fire you without any legal ramifications. The employment laws in New Jersey only protect employees from discrimination based on a protected characteristic (age, race, pregnancy, disability…) or from retaliation for complaining about illegal conduct.
