Discrimination Lawyers in New Jersey

Discrimination Attorneys Assist Clients in Newark, East Brunswick and Throughout New Jersey

Our New Jersey discrimination attorneys have over 60 years of experience fighting unfair discrimination against employees. In 1964, the Civil Rights Act was passed by Congress. The legislation made it illegal for an employer to discriminate based on race or gender. We’ve come a long way since then, but discrimination still exists today.

The renowned attorneys at Team Law are experienced in handling all types of discrimination cases. Contact one of our 12 conveniently located offices in Essex, Middlesex, Union and Hudson counties to speak with an employment lawyer for free about your discrimination claim. We can help you determine which type of discrimination best applies to your situation and how to leverage circumstances and resources to maximize your compensation.

Common Discrimination Issues in New Jersey Workplaces

  • Race discrimination is disturbingly common in the workplace. It is illegal for an employer to discriminate based on a current or potential employee’s race, but it is also illegal if that discrimination is based on the race of someone with whom the employee spends time.
  • Gender discrimination is also still shockingly prevalent in this country. Employers are required by law to pay male and female employees equally if they have identical job responsibilities and work in the same environment.

Discrimination also goes way beyond gender and race to include religion, disability and pregnancy, to name only a few. A more exhaustive list is below. Don’t suffer in silence if you believe you or someone you love is being discriminated against or sexually harassed at work. Call Team Law today; we serve clients throughout New Jersey, including Middlesex, Essex, Hudson and Union counties.

The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination deems the following types of discrimination illegal in New Jersey workplaces:

  • Age
  • Sex
  • Race, religion, ethnicity or nationality
  • Disability
  • Pregnancy
  • Appearance
  • Sexual orientation or marital status
  • Veteran and military status

Discrimination Attorneys Fight for Employees’ Rights in New Brunswick, Rahway and Throughout New Jersey

There are two ways to prove employment discrimination:

  1. Direct Method: An admission or other form of direct proof that the discrimination occurred. For example, perhaps your employer said, “You’re fired because your pregnancy renders you unfit to do your job.”
  2. Indirect method: The more common method, it proves the discrimination in three steps:
    1. Employee presents proof that he or she is equally as qualified as other employees who are a different race, sex, age, etc.
    2. Company must present an alternate reason for differential treatment, such as inferior performance.
    3. Employee then outlines why the company’s reason is false or pre textual and that the firing was, indeed, wrongful termination.

Keep in mind that if your employer can offer a facially valid explanation as to why your employment was terminated, you must consider whether you will be able to prove that the employer’s reason is just a cover-up for discrimination. Can you show that the employer’s stated reason is factually untrue, or that it was insufficient cause to have justified your discharge? Is it possible to prove that your protected status is much more likely to have caused the termination than the stated reason? Do you have powerful evidence of the discrimination?
