Whistleblower Retaliation

image_whistleblowerNew Jersey’s Conscientious Employee Protection Act (CEPA) is one of the broadest and most powerful whistleblower protection statutes in the United States. CEPA protects employees who blow the whistle, complain, or refuse to participate in activities of the employer or co-workers which the employee reasonably believes to be in violation of law or public policy. CEPA not only protects against retaliatory termination, but also retaliatory demotions, transfers, discipline and patterns of retaliatory behavior and bullying.

In addition to CEPA, the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD) protects employees who have complained about discrimination against themselves or others from retaliation. The New Jersey Civil Rights Act protects public employees and some private employees from retaliation in violation of the New Jersey and U.S. Constitutions. The Family and Medical Leave Act protects employees from retaliation for taking leave to care for a serious health condition suffered by the employee or the employee's immediate family member. New Jersey's common law also protects against retaliatory termination violating public policy, such as retaliation for filing a workers' compensation claim.

Schorr & Associates has been aggressively representing employees who have suffered retaliation since 1993. Alan H. Schorr, a Certified Civil Trial attorney, has had many significant legal victories at the Federal and Appellate Courts, including Stomel v. CamdenGerard v. Camden County and Rivera v. Camden Board of Education, and numerous significant verdicts and settlements. Many of these cases are handled on a contingent basis (no fee unless recovery), and there is always a free initial telephone consultation available.
