Ramsey, New Jersey Hostile Work Environment Lawyers
You should not have to experience a hostile work environment at your job. In Ramsey and throughout both New Jersey and New York, harassment at work is illegal if it occurs because of your age, gender, pregnancy status, race, disability, national origin, sexual orientation, religion, veteran/military status or because of your membership in another legally protected group. In New Jersey it also is illegal for your company to harass you because you objected to, disclosed or refused to participate in an activity you reasonably believe is illegal, fraudulent, criminal or violates a clear mandate of public policy regarding public health, safety, welfare or the protection of the environment.What is a Hostile Work Environment?
A hostile work environment is another name for harassment. It occurs when your employer has made your working conditions so intolerable that it has, in effect, changed the terms and conditions of your employment. A hostile work environment is legally actionable when (1) it is motivated by an unlawful factor, such as one of the forms of discrimination and retaliation listed above and (2) it is either sufficiently severe (bad) or pervasive (frequent).
Our employment lawyers understand that harassment at work can not only make it much more difficult to perform your job, but it also can cause severe depression, anxiety and emotional distress. Whether you live or work in Ramsey or elsewhere in New Jersey or New York, our attorneys can help if you have experienced a hostile workplace at your job. Please feel free to call us at (973) 744-4000 to explain what has happened and to schedule a consultation with one of our employment law attorneys.About Ramsey
The Borough of Ramsey is located at the base of the Ramapo Mountains, near the border with New York State. According to the most recent census, Ramsey has a population of 14,473. It is bordered by Upper Saddle River, Allendale and Mahwah.
Ramsey was named after landowner Peter J. Ramsey. It was incorporated in 1908 from parts of Hohokus Township. The Borough was established as a commuter town because of its proximity to the Paterson and Ramapo Railroads.
