Employment Lawyers Protecting Whistleblowers in New Jersey and New York

Whistleblowers are employees who are brave enough to speak out on behalf of their coworkers and fellow citizens even though they put their own safety and careers in jeopardy by doing so. They typically identify problems or injustices in the workplace, and make them known to their employers, their coworkers or the government. Unfortunately, instead of being thanked for their efforts, whistleblowers often end up experiencing retaliation from their employers, such as being fired, demoted or harassed.

Our society needs whistleblowers to help identify violations of the law and other problems in the workplace. As a result, many laws protect whistleblowers from retaliation. For example, New Jersey has a very broad whistleblower law, the Conscientious Employee Protection Act ("CEPA"), which among other things protects employees who object to or refuse to participate in activities they reasonably believe are unlawful, fraudulent, criminal, or violate a clear mandate of public policy relating to public health, safety, welfare or the environment. Other state and federal laws in both New Jersey and New York prohibit retaliation, including the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA"), the Family & Medical Leave Act ("FMLA"), the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination ("LAD"), and the New York Human Rights Law ("NYHRL").
