Workplace Retaliation Retaliation in Violation of the NJLAD

The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (“NJLAD”) is far-reaching anti-discrimination statute, one of the toughest in the country.  The NJLAD forbids employers from discriminating on the basis of an employee’s membership in a protected class and it prohibits employers from engaging in workplace retaliation. If you believe you’ve been retaliated against for complaints of discrimination, you need to immediately speak with an employment attorney.

Discrimination is unlawful. If you have suffered discrimination due to your membership to any of the below classes, your rights have been violated:

Workplace Retaliation
  • Race or Color
  • Disability or Perceived Disability
  • Pregnancy
  • National Origin
  • Religion
  • Gender
  • Ancestry
  • Domestic Partnership Status
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Member of the Armed Forces
  • Age
  • Marital status
  • Nationality

Under the NJLAD, it is unlawful for your employer to retaliate against you for complaining about discrimination you have experienced or witnessed in the workplace. It is also unlawful for an employer to retaliate against you for helping a co-worker further their complaint of discrimination.

You need to speak with an accomplished workplace retaliation attorney if your employer has retaliated against you for your complaints of discrimination.
