Sexual Discrimination in Contractual Relationships

The New Jersey Law against Discrimination (The "LAD") has been described as a "civil rights statute," one of the more far reaching employment statutes in the United States. The mandate from the legislature, consistently reaffirmed by our courts, is to interpret the law against discrimination broadly and liberally, in order to achieve its purpose. Its purpose has been best described as that of eradicating "the cancer of discrimination." To this end, the LAD has been from time to time revised and expanded, sometimes by legislative intent, sometimes by reasonable court interpretation. Most of the attention paid by the Courts under the LAD has been directed to employment relationships as opposed to the other relationships the LAD governs, such as those involved in housing, obtaining loans, etc.
