Skillfully Defending Employees Against Discrimination, Harassment, Wrongful Termination And More

Our lawyers work with clients to proactively avoid discrimination, harassment and wrongful termination claims by ensuring compliance with Federal and State laws such as New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, Conscientious Employee Protection Act (“CEPA”), the Americans with Disabilities Act, the New Jersey Wage and Hour Law, among others.  New Jersey’s Conscientious Employee Protection Act prohibits retaliation or other adverse employment action based upon whistleblowing. Whistleblowing means that the employee either disclosed, objected to, or refused to participate in an activity the employee reasonably believed to be: (1) a violation of a law, a rule promulgated by law, or regulation promulgated by law; (2) fraudulent or criminal; or (3) incompatible with a clear mandate of public policy concerning the public health, safety, or welfare or protection of the environment. Our attorneys have also successfully defended clients in wrongful discharge lawsuits.

Employment Agreements, Non-Competes and Other Contract Litigation

Our attorneys draft, negotiate and enforce various employment agreements, documents and restrictive covenants. These documents include employee handbooks, procedures and policies, employment agreements, severance agreements, confidentiality agreements, non-competition agreements, non-solicitation agreements and indemnification agreements. We also review employee handbooks and manuals and employment agreements for our clients to assure compliance with employment laws and protect against unintended risk or exposure to liability. The multidisciplinary talents of our attorneys in the preparation of these documents ensure that our clients remain compliant with employment laws and regulations and to proactively minimize employer liability.
