In employment matters, the deck is often stacked against employees who have little experience with these issues and think they have the most to lose — that is unless they are represented by a skilled employment law attorney who knows how to hold employers accountable for how they should legally be treating employees.
Many employment law claims involve allegations of wrongful termination. It is important to understand that employment is at-will in New Jersey. That means that employees are free to leave a job whenever they choose and for whatever reason. Employers are allowed to terminate employees with or without cause, provided no laws are violated. Termination is only wrongful if it has violated a law. For example, if the termination was an act of retaliation or discrimination, it may have been wrongful and the employee may file a claim.
Wrongful termination may be retaliation for filing a workers’ compensation claim, blowing the whistle on potentially illegal activity on the part of the employer or for taking any other action the employer is not happy with. Retaliation may also come in the form of harassment, demotion, disciplinary action and more. Often, issues in employment law overlap. Your case may begin as a whistleblower claim and then you may be wrongfully fired. The Law Office of Donald W. Bedell will stay by your side through every employment law challenge.
