Representing The Wrongfully Terminated
Taking Legal Action After Job Loss Or Retaliation
While in most cases, employers have the right to dismiss an employee for any reason, there are some cases when an employee has the right to take legal action after being fired. Wrongful termination may involve a breach of an employee contract or retaliation for reporting wrongdoing, or discrimination.
Attorney Alan Genitempo leads our employment law department and has a solid record of experience and results representing employees and employers, including corporations and municipal entities. Our wrongful termination lawyers have a solid grasp of the relevant and developing laws affecting your rights, and pursue claims, and can defend your interests, in cases involving:
- Wrongful termination on basis of discrimination: We represent clients in Title VII categories as well as NJLAD protected classes. Our attorneys have taken on cases involving discrimination based on race, sexual orientation, family status, disability, gender, and obesity.
- Retaliatory discharge: A wrongful discrimination case also involves employees who are fired for reporting illegal activity.
- Contractual claims: Wrongful termination may involve a breach of contract or a firing or a layoff that violates an employment contract. We will examine corporate policy provisions or labor law/union contracts and will aggressively protect your personal or business interests.
