Lyndhurst, New Jersey Lawyers Fighting Fraud by Employers
Companies often make great promises to employees to convince them to accept their job offers. For example, they might offer excellent salary and benefits, promise to provide staff and financial support to help you succeed at your job, claim the company has an excellent financial track record, or assure you that you will have long-term job security. But unfortunately companies sometimes exaggerate or outright lie when they are hiring new employees. Sometimes this form of fraud by employers can be legally actionable.
Although the ideal way to protect you from these types of false promises is to enter into a clear written employment contact, that is not always a viable option. But even if you do not have an employment contract, you could have a legal claim if your new employer lied to convince you to accept its job offer. More specifically, you might have a claim for employment fraud or misrepresentation.
Employment fraud most commonly occurs when a company makes false promises to convince you to leave another job, relocate from another state or make other significant financial or personal commitments. In New Jersey this can be legally actionable even if you were hired as an employee at-will who can be fired for almost any reason or even for no reason at all.

Even earlier, Lyndhurst had been part of Lodi Township, and before that it was part of Harrison Township.
