It is an unlawful employment practice to retaliate against a person because he or she has opposed practices prohibited by the NJLAD or has or intends to file a complaint, testify, or assist in any proceedings under the NJLAD. Employers who have denied promotions or raises to, demoted, suspended terminated or otherwise disciplined employees who pressed claims of discrimination have been guilty of unlawful retaliation under the discrimination laws in New Jersey.
Retaliation under the NJLAD is decided on a case-by-case basis. However, there is no protected activity and less the employee is acting in good faith and has a reasonable belief that there has been a violation of the NJLAD. If you believe that you have been the victim of retaliation for presenting complaints of discrimination, harassment/hostile work environment, or sexual harassment contact an experienced employment lawyer at Kurkowski Law today for a free consultation.
