Rights of Employees
Montclair, New Jersey Wrongful Termination Lawyers
In New Jersey, wrongful termination (also known as wrongful discharge) is a general term for when you are fired for an illegal reason.
As our New Jersey wrongful termination lawyers can explain to you, although not every time someone is fired unfairly is legally actionable, there are many different laws that limit when your employer can fire you. For example, this includes being fired due to unlawful discrimination, such as because of your age, gender, race or disability. Likewise, it can include being fired in violation of an employment contract, such as a breach of a one year contract or an agreement that says you can be fired only for "just cause."
Wrongful termination also includes being fired in retaliation for objecting to something you reasonably believed was illegal or being fired in violation of a clear mandate of public policy, in violation of New Jersey's whistleblower law, the Conscientious Employee Protection Act ("CEPA"). Similarly, it includes being fired in retaliation for exercising rights under certain employment laws such as the Family & Medical Leave Act ("FMLA"), the New Jersey Family Leave Act ("NJFLA"), or the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA").
While there are many forms of unlawful wrongful termination, not every unfair firing is legally actionable. As a result, it is important that you speak to an employment law expert who understands your rights and can properly evaluate your potential legal claims and provide you expert legal advice.Employment Lawyers Representing Victims of Wrongful Termination
