Employment Discrimination

In modern society, we take pride in the great strides that we have made in fighting against discrimination. Unfortunately, too many workers still experience discrimination in the workplace. The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination is one the broadest and strongest anti-discrimination laws in the nation. The protection of the NJLAD does not only protect against discrimination on the basis of race, age, gender and disability, it is far broader.

Specifically, the NJLAD makes it an unlawful employment practice to discriminate against an employee on the basis of:

“race, creed, color, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, civil union status, domestic partnership status, affectional or sexual orientation, genetic information, pregnancy, sex, gender identity or expression, disability or atypical hereditary cellular or blood trait of any individual, or because of the liability for service in the Armed Forces of the United States or the nationality of any individual.”
