New Jersey Employment Discrimination Lawyers

Unfortunately, employment discrimination happens within workplaces across the nation, and when it happens to someone, it is devastating in the short-term but also to the person’s long-term career and confidence. In New Jersey, the Law Against Discrimination (LAD), Employment discrimination can include, but not limited to, unfairness or unfavorable treatment within a workplace or an organization due to:

  • Age
  • Race
  • Gender
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Physical/mental disabilities

While employment discrimination can cause immediate and severe economic hardship, it is also responsible for emotional distress, fear, and the erosion of someone’s professional reputation. As such, it is vital that an employee have competent legal guidance when it seems that you were mistreated at the workplace or wrongly terminated from your employment due to such unlawful discrimination.
