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.
