Employment Discrimination Lawyer Fighting to Put an End to Discrimination

Federal, state, and local laws forbid employers from discriminating on the basis of an employee’s membership in a protected class, such as race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, or age. New Jersey has its own anti-discrimination statute, the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (“NJLAD”).

Under the NJLAD, it is unlawful for an employer to take adverse action against an employee due to their membership in a protected class. It is also unlawful for a business to refuse to contract with an independent contractor because the individual belongs to a protected class. The NJLAD also protects those individuals who are not members of a protected class but are treated as such due to their association with members of that class or the employer’s mistaken perception that the individual belongs to the protected class.
