If an employer fires or takes adverse action against an employee because the employee was injured at work and claimed the benefits of workers’ compensation, the employee may have a claim of retaliation under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, New Jersey Statute Annotated § 10:5-1, et seq. and under New Jersey Statute Annotated § 34:15-39.1.
Elkind and DiMento, P.A. will evaluate cases on behalf of an employee who has a claim of employment discrimination or an employer against whom a claim is brought. We will fully explain your options to you and the legal implications of the decisions available to you. We will also aggressively litigate a claim of employment discrimination on behalf of our employee clients and will aggressively defend our employer clients against whom a claim is made under this Act.
