Discrimination and Harassment Attorneys in Lawnside, NJ

Our discrimination and harassment lawyers in Lawnside, New Jersey understand that unlawful employment discrimination and harassment can destroy careers. Our attorneys aggressively litigate on behalf of our clients to hold employers accountable for their wrongful actions and recover compensation for our clients’ losses.

Discrimination in the workplace is illegal when it is based on the protected characteristics of employees, including race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, disability, age, pregnancy, national origin, and religion. However, many employers still allow discrimination to flourish in their workplaces or actively engage in discriminatory practices. Employees in New Jersey have legal protection under both state and federal law and can pursue legal remedies when they have been discriminated against in the workplace.

When discrimination or harassment based on protected characteristics occurs, the victims can pursue compensation by filing lawsuits against their employers. Through a discrimination or harassment lawsuit, employees might recover damages for their lost wages, including future lost wages, and emotional distress. They might also be entitled to recover punitive damages in certain situations. There are strict deadlines for when people must file claims, and employees must file harassment or discrimination charges with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission before they can file lawsuits.

Harassment based on the protected characteristics of an employee is also considered to be a type of illegal discrimination. When people have experienced pervasive harassment that creates hostile work environments or have been the victims of quid pro quo harassment, they can file harassment charges.

If you have experienced unlawful discrimination or harassment in the workplace based on your membership in a protected group, you should contact one of our experienced discrimination attorneys to learn about your rights. We can explain the legal merits of your claim and help you to gather the types of evidence you might need to support your case.

Whistleblower Attorneys in Lawnside, NJ

Whistleblowers are protected under multiple federal and state laws. These laws were enacted to protect employees who report the unlawful conduct of their employers to the authorities. If you have inside knowledge that your employer has violated the law or has engaged in a massive fraud scheme against a government agency, you are protected if you file a whistleblower lawsuit. Our attorneys can help people file whistleblower lawsuits with the appropriate courts. If you face retaliation by your employer after filing a whistleblower lawsuit, we can file a retaliation claim.

The government has passed whistleblower laws because it would not be able to uncover all of the different types of criminal conduct employers might engage in against the government without the willingness of people to come forward with information. Whistleblower laws offer incentives to employees who file successful whistleblower lawsuits by offering awards ranging from 10% to 30% of the total recovered amounts.

If you have been the victim of unlawful workplace practices, including discrimination, harassment, or wage and hour violations, you should reach out to the employment attorneys at Swartz Swidler today. You should also call us if you have non-public information about your employer’s illegal conduct or have suffered retaliation for asserting your rights.
