Employment Law

Discrimination in the Workplace

No one should ever have to suffer racial bigotry, age discrimination or a sexually hostile work environment and the accompanying humiliation. Workers are too often the victims of abuse and job discrimination by their employers.

It is entirely illegal for any employer to discriminate against you because of your age, race, color, religion, sex, disability or sexual orientation.

It is also against the law for an employer to treat you differently or harass you because of your disability, age, sex, race, national origin, religion, sexual orientation or any other protected class when:

  • applying for a job
  • during the course of your employment
  • firing you from your job
  • forcing you to retire

“At Will” Employment

New Jersey is an employment “at will” state. The majority of workers in this state are not union workers, operating under a collective bargaining agreement, nor do the vast majority of workers work under an individual employment contract guaranteeing them a specific term of employment.

“At will” employees make up the majority of our workforce in New Jersey. There are advantages and disadvantages to working as an “at will” employee. An employee “at will” may leave their job whenever they want without any concern or negative consequence resulting.

Unfortunately, however, “at will” employees can be lawfully fired for any reason (or no reason at all). An employer can be blatantly unfair or arbitrary and fire an employee for other factors such as a personality conflicts, nepotism or favoritism.

In other words, these terminations, although morally wrong, arbitrary, unfair and repulsive to our sense of decency or notions of fair play, are not unlawful under our current law. Discrimination in the workplace, however, may certainly be.

Robert White III, Esq. was professional and efficient in every step of the process. From dealing with my Worker's Comp insurance to making sure I got the best care with a skilled neurosurgeon and making sure my case was handled fairly by a judge and the court system. I would definitely recommend Garces, Grabler and LeBrocq for anyone who was in need of representation for such matters.

I found my attorney, Mr. Kessous, to be highly professional, knowledgeable, friendly and effective. He was highly responsive to my questions and concerns and easy to work with, and achieved the desired settlement for me in regard to my traffic ticket. If I were in the same situation all over again, I would choose to work with him without hesitation, and expect that if I were to face a similar situation in the foreseeable future, I would contact him. I would also provide his name with the highest recommendation to others in the area for such problems. (I also found his assistant, Gabriela Vargas, to be quite responsive and helpful as well.) Thanks again for all of your help!
