New Jersey Workplace Discrimination Attorneys
Race | Gender | Age | Disability | Creed Or Religion | National Origin | Sexual Orientation | Pregnancy | Marital Status
Under both state and federal law, workers in New Jersey are protected from unfair or wrongful treatment by their employers based on certain classifications such as race, gender, age or disability. As a worker, you may seek damages if you were a victim of discrimination, whether or not your employer intended to discriminate against you or its actions simply had a discriminatory impact. When you have suffered losses because of disparate treatment on the job, you want an experienced and aggressive lawyer to protect your rights.
At The Law Office of Mallon & Tranger, we have more than 40 years of experience protecting the rights of people who have been victims of workplace discrimination across Monmouth County and Ocean County in New Jersey. We are skilled and experienced trial attorneys and are always willing and able to take your case to court to get the outcome you seek. Our founding partner, Thomas Mallon, is a certified civil trial lawyer with an extensive knowledge of trial law and procedure. We prepare every case in anticipation of going to trial, a strategy that consistently yields positive results for our clients.
Protecting your rights in an employment discrimination action
In employment discrimination lawsuits, you generally have a right to seek damages if you have been treated differently because of what the law identifies as a “suspect classification.” In New Jersey, under the Law Against Discrimination (LAD), you may not be discriminated against based on any of the following:
- Race or color
- Creed or religion
- National origin, ancestry or nationality
- Gender, including status as or intention to become pregnant
- Marital status or participation in a domestic partnership
- Sexual orientation
You have a right to seek compensation whether the discrimination you experienced was intentional or incidental. If your employer targets you specifically because of a suspect classification, you can seek damages under a legal theory known as disparate intent. If, on the other hand, your employer imposes companywide policies that have the effect of discriminating against anyone who falls into your classification, we will help you pursue compensation under the legal theory known as disparate impact.
LAD prohibits all types of actions based on suspect classifications, including those related to recruitment, hiring, firing, interviews, promotions, demotions, compensation and benefits.
We aggressively protect the rights of anyone who has suffered from discrimination on the job. We will gather and evaluate all evidence, prepare and file all necessary documentation, and be your advocate in all hearings or proceedings.
