Strengthening your wrongful termination claim

If you believe that you were recently wrongly terminated from your job, there is a chance you can bring a successful wrongful termination suit and find justice — but even in a successful scenario, you're a long way from the finish line. In the meantime, the actions you take now may help you weather this difficult season well or dismantle your claim. Be sure to consider how your actions may affect the fair settlement you may choose to seek.

Can I expect any privacy in the workplace?

As an employee, you may not consider what rights you do or do not have in the workplace until you find one or more of them possibly violated. Unfortunately, many employees across all sectors of employment do not fully understand the nature of their rights in the workplace, and fail to defend those rights when an employer violates them. If you believe that your employer violated your employee rights, or simply want to better understand what you can expect in the workplace, you may want to consult with an employment law attorney.

Religious discrimination and prayer in the workplace

How an employer treats inter-office communication can be an important factor in whether employees are singled out for discrimination. Invitations to join a religious gathering or join in a prayer for any reason could easily open the door for unlawful discrimination. The right to observe the religion of your choice, or refrain from joining in a religious observance that does not match your beliefs, is guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution and under New Jersey law. If you are penalized or persecuted for your religious beliefs, your employer is violating the law.

Is your employer denying you fair disability accommodation?

Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), disabled employees throughout the country enjoy protection from discrimination in the workplace. In addition to protection from discrimination, the ADA requires employers to provide "reasonable accommodation" to disabled employees.

Misclassified employees are often owed back pay

Depending on the nature of your job and other factors, your employer may misclassify you as an exempt employee. Employee misclassification is a significant problem in many industries, and one that employers are rarely eager to fix. If you face misclassification, whether an employer misclassifies you as an exempt employee accidentally or purposefully, you still must deal the same consequences.
