Your Law Firm for All Employment Law Matters
Our team of New Jersey employment law attorneys take an eclectic group approach
to employment law cases. Bringing together our knowledge and insight creates
an optimal experience for our clients by constructing a stronger, better
position on their behalves. Thanks to our teamwork and extensive familiarity
with both state and federal employment laws, we can take on essentially
any employment law case for you.
We can provide counsel and representation for cases involving the following and more:
Discrimination: Employees in most workplaces are protected against workplace discrimination
involving a protected class due to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of
1964, New York State and City anti-discrimination statutes and the New
Jersey Law Against Discrimination. We take cases for employees who have
faced discrimination based on their race, color, religion, sex, age, gender
identity, military service, and so forth. Together, we can demand and
pursue justice for you after facing discrimination.
Sexual Harassment: All employees are shielded from sexual harassment in the workplace. “Quid
pro quo” harassment promises something in return for a sexually-driven
favor, like higher wages if an employee goes on a date with their boss.
A “hostile work environment” can constitute sexual harassment
if an employee reasonably feels uncomfortable with the behaviors or communications
of other employees, like being sent group emails with jokes in the footers
about sexual encounters.
Reductions in Force (RIF): Sometimes the best companies in the world need to downsize due to a lack
of funds, a lessening of product demand, reorganization, and so forth.
We can help your business with its reduction in force processes to attempt
to best ensure the avoidance of accusations or instances of wrongful termination.
Negotiation of severance agreements: Certain employees are provided severance agreements as either a benefit
of employment or as something set forth upon cessation from employment.
When the employment relationship ends, severance agreement often provide
employees with additional compensation – in exchange for a legally
binding promise not to file a lawsuit against the employer for any reason
thereafter. Let us help you negotiate a reasonable severance agreement
as either an employee or an employer.
Restrictive Covenants: Many employment agreements include a restrictive covenant clause that bars
the employee from certain activities after leaving the company. A non-compete
agreement requires the employee to not work for a competitor until a certain
amount of time has passed. A non-solicitation agreement prevents a former
employee from soliciting current employees of the business to leave their
employment for opportunities elsewhere and/or from soliciting the employer’s
clients to engage in business elsewhere. Whether you are an employer or
an employee, we can help you understand, enforce or maneuver around restrictive
Retaliation: Employees cannot face retaliation for engaging in legal behaviors, such
as notifying their employers about discrimination or sexual harassment
in the workplace, or for refusing to engage in illegal or arguably immoral
behaviors in the workplace. Damages for being retaliated against are similar
to the damages available for the underlying claims of discrimination or
sexual harassment, and they are usually significant. Our New Jersey and
New York employment law attorneys can help if you believe you have been
retaliated against. We also help companies handle retaliation accusations
with professionalism, shielding their businesses from legal troubles and
Conscientious Employee Protection Act (CEPA): A New Jersey-specific act that protects employees from retaliation carried
out by their employer for refusing to engage in any activity that is illegal
or against public policy, or they reasonably believe to be illegal or
against public policy. CEPA is unique to New Jersey only and is often
alleged with violations of the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination.
Corporate governance and internal investigations: Our attorneys can help your business stay compliant with all government
mandates and other industry rules and regulations, reducing the chances
of being audited by a state or federal agency. We are also capable of
providing representation and guidance for your company’s internal
investigations, such as investigating claims of discrimination and/or
Wage and Hour laws: One of the more complex areas of employment law. Simply put, state and
federal wage and hour laws govern the wages that an employer can pay its
employees. Whether it be minimum wage or overtime, classification, department
of labor regulations and/or attempting to best ensure compliance, our
employment attorneys can help you or your business avoid the many pitfalls
which wage and hour laws often impact.
