Legal Versus Illegal Retaliation In New Jersey

We are contacted by many potential clients who believe they have a retaliation claim based on employer taking an adverse employment action due to them complaining about an internal procedure or a failure to follow policy. New Jersey’s retaliation law only protects employees who suffer retaliation for complaining about a violation of law, public policy or other legal guidelines.

Accordingly, there is no recourse for retaliation resulting from anything not within those limited protections of New Jersey’s retaliation law.
