Northern NJ Law Firm Aims to Level the Playing Field for Employees
Dedicated employment lawyers protecting clients’ rights
Various employment laws exist at the state and federal level aimed at ensuring workers are free from unlawful harassment and discrimination. Unfortunately, some employers in New Jersey violate these laws, and workers suffer as a result. At Krakower DiChiara LLC in Caldwell, we have been protecting the rights of workers throughout North Jersey since 2007. Pursuing a legal claim against an employer can be intimidating, which is why you don’t want to handle this alone.
Our dedicated employment lawyers have 25 years of combined experience taking on employers of all sizes. We will evaluate your situation, advise you of your options, and pursue the most favorable result possible through legal channels.
Strong legal advocacy for employees facing workplace discrimination and sexual harassmentWorkplace discrimination is unlawful. There are both federal and state laws in place that protect workers from working in an unsafe environment due to discrimination on the basis of gender, race, age, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or disability.
The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (LAD) also prohibits all forms of unwelcome advances, abuse or threats of a sexual nature, or demeaning commentary or acts, based on a person’s gender, race, religion, disability or age in the workplace. If you believe you’ve been the victim of sexual harassment such as quid pro quo or a hostile work environment by a manager, co-worker, subordinate, or even a client, we can help you seek justice and restitution. If you are the full or part-time employee of a school, you also have protections under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.
Knowledgeable litigators for New Jersey wrongful termination cases
Even though New Jersey is an employment-at-will state, there are several exceptions to the protections that the law gives to employers. In general, you can sue an employer in New Jersey for wrongful termination if you believe it was due to discrimination or retaliation, if it goes against any public policy or breaks an implied or actual contract.
If you believe you were wrongfully dismissed from your employment, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages as well as other legal remedies. Our skilled wrongful termination lawyers can negotiate favorable terms with your employer or, if necessary, litigate your case in court.
Experienced attorneys fight for clients in the face of whistleblower retaliation
If your employer is engaged in illegal conduct or is subjecting staff to unsafe work conditions, you have the right to complain under New Jersey’s whistleblower laws. Under the New Jersey Conscientious Employee Protection Act (CEPA), it is unlawful for an employer to take adverse action against an employee that makes such a complaint.
If your employer harassed, demoted, terminated or otherwise retaliated against you after you objected to their unsafe or illegal conduct, our whistleblower retaliation lawyers can protect your interests and pursue a claim for just damages.
