Whistleblower Protection

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” on their employer.  Blowing the whistle includes complaining about or refusing to participate in activities of the employer or co-workers which the employee reasonably believes to be in violation of law or public policy. Blowing the whistle also includes reporting activities which the employee reasonably believes to be in violation of law or public policy to appropriate outside agencies.

CEPA protects employees from being retaliated against as a result of blowing the whistle. This includes not only retaliatory termination, but also retaliatory demotions, transfers, salary reductions, disciplinary actions, harassment, bullying, and other adverse actions. If you suffer consequences for reporting, complaining about or refusing to participate in activities you reasonably believe to be illegal, you are protected by CEPA.

The employment attorneys at Schorr & Associates have 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. Camden, Gerard 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.
