Rights of Employees
Clifton, New Jersey Retaliation Lawyers
Our employment law firm represents employees who have experienced workplace retaliation in the workplace in New Jersey and New York. For example, we handle cases in which employees have been wrongfully terminated because they complained about illegal discrimination , such as discrimination based on age, race, disability or gender at their jobs.
Rabner Baumgart Ben-Asher & Nirenberg, P.C. also handles whistleblower claims under New Jersey’s Conscientious Employee Protection Act ("CEPA"). Among other things, CEPA prohibits companies from retaliating against employees who object to or refuse to participate in activities they reasonably believe are illegal, fraudulent, or criminal.
Likewise, we handle retaliation cases under the Family & Medical Leave Act ("FMLA"), the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") and many other state and federal employment laws that protect whistleblowers. We also represent employees of state and local municipal governments who have been retaliated against because they exercised their First Amendment rights such as the right to Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion.Experienced Whistleblower Lawyers
In fact, whistleblower claims are probably the most common type of claims our employment attorneys handle. We have settled countless retaliation claims through negotiations, and litigated them in both state and federal court. For instance, one of our precedent-setting cases, Brennan v. Norton, makes it clear that the notice requirement of New Jersey’s Tort Claims Act does not apply to claims brought under CEPA.
