New Jersey Teachers’ Rights Attorneys

Wrongful Discharge Or Termination

Teachers are not immune to unfair treatment in the workplace. An administrator may make illegal or unreasonable demands of you and fire you when you don't comply. You may be subject to discrimination or harassment that makes the work environment so difficult that you are compelled to quit. Whether you are tenured or not, you have rights. An experienced and knowledgeable attorney can protect your interests.

At The Law Office of Mallon & Tranger, we bring nearly 40 years of experience to men and women who have been improperly or illegally discharged from teaching positions.

There is no charge for your first consultation.

Protecting Teachers From Illegal Or Improper Termination

Under New Jersey law, known as Title 18A, teachers are provided with special protections, which include:

  • Tenure, provided you comply with codes of behavior over a period of time
  • Freedom from disciplinary transfer
  • Due process in any disciplinary hearing
  • Protection during layoffs
  • Protection of benefits and compensation

At The Law Office of Mallon & Tranger, we provide comprehensive counsel to tenured and untenured teachers whose rights have been violated. We will fully investigate your case, looking to determine if school officials violated the terms of Title 18A or wrongfully discharged you in violation of law or your constitutional rights. We represent teachers working in private and public schools, including charter schools, magnet schools and other alternative academic settings.

We will handle all matters related to any legal proceeding, from disciplinary hearings to any legal action you may take to enforce your rights. We will carefully gather, evaluate and preserve all evidence supporting your position and will prepare and file all documentation required throughout the process.
