Have You Been Wrongfully Terminated? Get Answers About Your Rights From Our NJ Wrongful Termination Lawyers.
New Jersey’s employment laws protect individuals from wrongful termination. Our NJ wrongful termination lawyers at Castronovo & McKinney can help answer any questions or concerns you may have about your wrongful termination case in New Jersey. In order for a wrongful termination claim to be actionable, we need to show that it was an illegal termination. Most terminations are wrongful in that it in unfair and damages your ability to provide for yourself and your family and damages your reputation. However, not all wrongful terminations are considered illegal in New Jersey.
A wrongful termination is illegal if it violates the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, New Jersey Conscientious Employee Protection Act and various other State and Federal statutes. For a violation of the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, we would need to prove that you were terminated due to a protected characteristic, i.e. race, disability, pregnancy, national origin, age, gender, sexual orientation, perceived sexual orientation, marital status, etc. It would also be considered a wrongful termination if you were to complain about harassment or discrimination based on a protected characteristic and the company retaliated against you for complaining about the conduct.
For a wrongful discharge in violation of the New Jersey Conscientious Employee Protection Act, we would need to be able to prove that you disclosed, or threatened to disclose a violation of law or illegal conduct and suffered retaliation as a result.
