     Often, employers do not have in place sound employment policies and practices. Managers and supervisors often do not have access to a well-developed employee manual. Lack of adequate employee manuals, policies and practices often lead to unfair treatment of the employee. Unfair treatment may lead to being passed by for a well deserved promotion, raise or other benefit. In the worse case, unfair treatment may lead to termination.

     Under the LAD, we see employers engaging in such conduct as offensive sexual touching, racial comments jokes or epithets. Sometime, a well qualified minority is passed over for a promotion or more lucrative assignment in favor of a less qualified Caucasian. These all are illegal activities under the NJ LAD.

     Also, an employee may witness an employer, a boss or manager, engaging in illegal activity. The illegal activity may involve serious questions of public safety or concern. A law abiding and conscientious employee may legally advise proper authorities or higher management. That employee is protected from retaliation.

     In order to remedy an adverse decision or action by an employer, litigation may become necessary. Upon successful conclusion of a lawsuit, the defendant employer may be required to pay attorney fees and costs.

     The case law and statutory law in these areas are complicated. If litigation is stated, you can be sure the employer or the employers’ insurance company will hire a defense attorney well qualified in this area. You need Mark Law Firm to represent your interests. You should not attempt to handle this type of a situation on your own.

     Call Mark law firm to discuss any situation you think may be an adverse employment action by your employer.
