Is a New Jersey Release, Waiver or Arbitration Agreement Signed Knowingly and Voluntarily?

By Thomas McKinney

Our New Jersey Employment Lawyers recently prevailed on an appeal before the Superior Court of New Jersey, Appellate Division, in Carey v. NMC Global Corp. Plaintiff appealed the lower court’s ruling dismissing his claim for disability discrimination based on the waiver and release that was signed at the same time he was informed of his termination.  The Appellate Division held that there were genuine issues of fact relating to whether there was a knowing and voluntary waiver of his rights.
