New Jersey Law Regarding At-Will Employment

Employment Law in NJIt’s crucial for every employee to understand the contract and terms of their employment. Some individuals are considered full-time employees of a business, and others may be working as independent contractors.  Most employees in the State of New Jersey are considered “at-will employees. The exact definition of these terms also defines the rights you have as an employee of the company, so it’s important to understand the terms before accepting a job opportunity.

What are At-Will Employees in New Jersey?

In general, the state of New Jersey assumes that you are employed at-will unless otherwise specified in your employee contract or oral statements made by your employer. It’s best that you seek out a written document describing your employee status to protect your rights.

When you are employed at-will, employment law dictates that employers can terminate your employment at any point and without a good cause, although Wrongful termination lawsuits may be filed when an employer has fired an employee illegally. Illegal termination includes cases where the employee is fired for refusing to take part in unsafe activities, exercising a legal right, taking family or medical leave, discrimination based on age, religion, sexual orientation, race,  or retaliation for revealing improper company behavior.
