Do you suspect — or do you feel certain — that you have been illegally discriminated against on the job because of any of these aspects of your identity: age, disability, perceived disability, race, color, national origin, religion, sex or gender, pregnancy, marital status, veteran status or National Guard service?
You are well advised to seek qualified legal counsel if you believe you have suffered discrimination at the workplace in New Jersey or elsewhere. An experienced lawyer is well prepared to guide you in filing a complaint with agencies such as the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission), protecting yourself against illegal retaliation, filing a lawsuit and/or achieving a turn-around in your workplace environment.
Numerous laws over the past half century or more have spelled out what constitutes illegal discrimination on the job. Federal laws prohibiting specific forms of workplace discrimination include the following:
- The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)
- The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
- The Equal Pay Act of 1963, Title VII
- The Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA)
- The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA)
Discuss with a knowledgeable, experienced, proven-effective employment law attorney how these or other anti-discrimination laws such as the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (LAD) may protect you against wrongful termination or other forms of discrimination the job — and how to know whether you have a strong enough case to take legal action.
