New Jersey Employment Discrimination Attorneys
Employment discrimination is bad for business and it is bad for employees. When your rights and future are at stake in an employment discrimination dispute, you want and deserve an experienced lawyer looking out for your best interests. At the Fairfield law offices of William A. Feldman, LLC, we represent both employees and employers in private and public workplace discrimination disputes of all kinds throughout New Jersey, and when necessary in New York.
From the moment you walk into our Fairfield, New Jersey offices, we will put our experience and reputation to work for you. Handling employment discrimination cases for decades, we understand the challenges facing businesses and individuals alike in both plaintiffs’ and defense cases including federal and New Jersey employment laws.
New Jersey’s powerful Law Against Discrimination (“L.A.D.”), Conscientious Employee Protection Act (“C.E.P.A.”), and related federal laws are often decisive in cases involving wrongful termination, “whistleblower” or retaliation claims, violations of equal pay and other rights, and workplace harassment. We have successfully handled many diverse employment discrimination and retaliation cases, often based on the following factors:
- Race and National Origin (Title VII and L.A.D.)
- Age (`A.D.E.A. and L.A.D.)
- Gender or sex (L.A.D.)
- Sexual Orientation
- FLA/FMLA and ADA Disability or Handicap issues, both physical and emotional
- Religious and Ethnic Discrimination (L.A.D.)
- Equal Pay Issues (L.A.D.)
- Equal Employment and Promotion Opportunities (L.A.D.)
- Handicap or Disability discrimination and failure to reasonably accommodate an employee’s needs as a handicapped person (L.A.D. and A.D.A.)
Helping Employees and Employers Protect Themselves and Pursue their Goals Effectively
By taking action proactively, you can protect your business from unjustified employee claims, and employees can better protect themselves from illegal and unfair treatment. We defend employment discrimination matters for businesses, and counsel them to help them avoid expensive management mistakes that can lead to lawsuits. And we just as vigorously prosecute employees’ rights to protect our employee clients and vigorously prosecute claims on their behalf. Seeing the workplace from both the employer’s and employee’s points of view gives us a unique opportunity to evaluate and deal effectively with workplace issues and lawsuits pertaining to discrimination, harassment, and wrongful retaliation and achieve optimal results for our clients.
