For more than 35 years our lawyers at Limitone & Hillenbrand have counseled and represented clients in the full range of employment problems facing employees and employers today.
Claims of wrongful termination can be based on violations of the employment discrimination statutes, whistleblower laws and a variety of other statutes as well as public policy.
New Jersey's Law Against Discrimination, as well as many federal statutes, forbids employers from discriminating against employees on account of race, religion, national origin, age, gender, sexual orientation and ethnicity.
State and federal statutes not only protect employees from discrimination because of their disabilities, but also require employers to provide reasonable accommodations for those disabilities.
ERISA protects many types of employee benefits including retirement plans, disability benefit plans and severance pay plans.
Employers must maintain a workplace that is free of discriminatory intimidation, harassment and hostility such as racial name-calling, gender-based harassment and sexual harassment.
Sexual harassment consists of unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and/or verbal or physical conduct or physical nature. Quid pro quo sexual harassment occurs when a supervisor implicitly or explicitly makes submission to sexually harassing conduct a basis for decisions affecting the employee.
Many aspects of any employment relationship can be governed by contractual provisions created by formal contracts of employment, offer letters, the employer's payroll practices, and in limited situations, by the employer's policy manuals.
New Jersey courts will enforce noncompete agreements in a way that will protect the legitimate interests of the employer without causing undue burdens on the employee and the public.
