Hackensack Wrongful Termination Lawyers
Experienced Employee Rights Attorneys in Bergen County, New Jersey
New Jersey is an at-will employment state. At-will employment means that the employer or the employee can end the employment relationship at any time unless a written employment contract creates other terms. This also means that the employer can fire the employee for any reason, as long as the employer's decision doesn't violate state or federal employment laws.

Examples of Wrongful Termination and Violation of Employee Rights
Employment law disputes are almost always complex and colored by different perceptions among the manager and the employee. Wrongful termination cases are often complicated by the existence of some seemingly valid reason for the termination that may exist alongside the discriminatory reason.
Your attorney will ask you many questions and review all available documents from your employer as part of investigating your case.
Some basic examples of wrongful termination include:
- Did your employer terminate your employment in retaliation, after you complained about the company's illegal activity, such as discrimination against another employee, financial misdeeds or health and safety violations?
- Did your employer fire you for reasons related to your race, sex, disability, age or other protected characteristic?
These are only a few examples of what may be wrongful termination or violation of employee rights. Early consultation with an employment attorney will help you understand your rights.
