Wrongful Termination

It is important to recognize that not all NJ employment terminations are unlawful. In New Jersey, as in most states, employment is at-will. That means that generally either an employee or an employer can terminate the employment relationship at-will – at any time, for any reason or for no reason.

There are several exceptions to that general rule and many cases of wrongful termination in NJ, however. An employer is not permitted to terminate an employee for a discriminatory purpose. At Schorr & Associates, our experienced employment discrimination lawyers in NJ fight against discrimination in the workplace every day. An employer may not retaliate against an employee for whistleblowing or for filing a workers compensation claim. An employer may also face liability if the termination is in violation of a contract or collective bargaining agreement. Finally, an employer may not terminate an employee for a reason that would violate public policy, including, in some instances, constitutional violations.
