New Jersey whistleblower cases

October 30, 2015

If you see something happening at your office or workplace that is discriminatory, harassing or illegal in nature, you have every legal right to report the activity. However, individuals who report such wrongdoing are often punished by their employers and wrongfully terminated. This kind of retaliation against a “whistleblower” is absolutely unlawful. If it has happened to you, the Epstein Law Firm can help.

It is unlawful to demote, discriminate against, fire or retaliate against employee who: 1) reports the wrongful actions of his or her employer; 2) refuses to engage in unlawful or illegal activities as a part of his or her work; 3) files for workers’ compensation; 4) provides testimony about his or her employer’s behavior. In situations where retaliation happens like this, injured employees will have the ability to seek financial restitution in court for their damages.

In the state of New Jersey, employees are also protected by the Conscientious Employee Protection Act, which offers even more legal protections than the above. The Conscientious Employee Protection Act protects employees who have been retaliated against for: 1) reporting their employer’s unlawful actions; 2) refusing to carry out job duties that are discriminatory or illegal; 3) refusing to carry out job duties that violate the law; 4) giving testimony to police or the court about suspected illegal actions committed by an employer.

New Jersey whistleblowers and other employees who have been wrongfully retaliated against, may be entitled to seek various forms of compensation. At the Epstein Law Firm, we commonly seek financial restitution for lost wages, lost opportunity, emotional turmoil and other damages in cases involving whistleblowers who were unlawfully retaliated against.
