Bergen County Wrongful Termination Attorneys Protect People Who Have Been Wrongfully Terminated by Their Employer

In New Jersey, employees are protected from wrongful termination. In general terms, an employer can fire an at-will employee for any reason, as long as the termination is not for discrimination, a violation of public policy, a breach of a contract, or possibly, a violation of company policy.

The Epstein Law Firm has experience representing clients in all types of employment law matters, including wrongful termination lawsuits. If your employer has fired you wrongfully, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact our Bergen County law office online or call 201-231-7847 to speak to a skilled employment lawyer.

Are You Facing A Wrongful Termination Issue And Have Questions? We Can Help, Tell Us What Happened.

Discrimination-based Termination

An employer may not fire, demote, or discriminate against an employee based on:

  • Religion
  • Race
  • Age
  • National origin
  • Disability
  • Sexual orientation
  • Pregnancy

If an employer fires an employee for any of these reasons, the employee can pursue legal action. Through a wrongful termination claim, an employee may seek compensation for monetary and non-monetary damages. In the claim, it is necessary to prove that the employer did, indeed, wrongfully terminate the employee.

An employer cannot discriminate against a whistleblower, or an employee who has reported the illegal or discriminatory acts of their employer. Find out more about whistleblower protection.

Constructive Discharge

If an employer refuses to correct discrimination or harassing behavior in the workplace, the employee can take action against the employer. In fact, if the employer fails to take corrective action to eliminate the discrimination and/or sexual harassment and the employee is forced to quit, the employee may be able to sue for constructive discharge. In other words, the person was forced to quit. In doing so, the employee can sue the employer for wrongful discharge even after quitting the job.
