New Jersey Wrongful Discharge Claims
Wrongful Discharge | Termination In Violation Of Law | Breach Of Employment Contract | Constructive Discharge
Even though New Jersey is an “at-will” employment law state, meaning an employer may generally terminate an employee at its discretion, there are still many instances in which a firing will be considered wrongful and for which you may sue to recover damages. Your employer may not terminate you in breach of a valid employment contract, and you cannot be discharged in violation of law or public policy such as Title VII, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (LAD). When your rights have been violated, it’s critical that you hire an experienced lawyer.
At The Law Office of Mallon & Tranger, we bring more than 40 years of experience to people who have wrongful discharge claims in Monmouth County and Ocean County. Our founding partner, Thomas Mallon, is a certified civil trial lawyer in New Jersey. We prepare every case in anticipation of trial, a strategy that often allows us to settle your case in ways that meet your needs. Attorney Mallon also served as a prosecutor and an investigator for the Ocean County prosecutor’s office. We know how to gather, prepare and present the most effective evidence for your financial recovery. We will use our experience, skill, knowledge and resources to help you get full and fair compensation for all your losses.
Our Wrongful Discharge Practice
We aggressively protect the rights of people who have lost their jobs because of the wrongful or illegal conduct of their employers. We handle cases involving improper termination in violation of state or federal law, including actions under:
- The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination
- The Americans with Disabilities Act
- The Age Discrimination in Employment Act
- Title VII
You may have a right to seek compensation, even if your employer did not initiate the termination. Under the legal principle of “constructive discharge,” if you were subject to discrimination or harassment such that it made your work intolerable and your employer took no action to remedy the wrongful conduct, you can seek damages for the loss of your job, even if you voluntarily quit.
We also represent people who have been fired in breach of valid employment contracts. We will carefully review the terms of your agreement and help you seek appropriate damages if your termination was without cause under the contract.
