NJ Whistleblower Attorney, Female Executive Whistleblower Not Taken Seriously and Fears Retaliation


All employees fear repercussions when they complain to their employers about what they believe to be the employer’s dangerous activities which they fear could lead to harm of other employees or to the public. This is particularly true for female executives who may not be taken as seriously when expressing their concerns as would be similarly-situated male executives due to inherent sex-based bias in our culture.

Recently, a female executive who was a policy official on a team for a major internet company, is an extreme example of a female executive having her concerns ignored by the employer. The female executive in her employment position was responsible for designing the company’s internet content moderation rules. She had growing concerns that the company’s practices were causing a public harm and could lead to grave future harm.

NJ LGBTQ Employment Discrimination Lawyer, Non-Binary, Non-Cisgender Rights and the Overturning of Roe


Some legal scholars are concerned that US Supreme Court in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, decided June 24, 2022 contains rationales that will stimulate the Court’s self-encouragement for overturning other legal precedents affecting non-binary and non-cisgender rights, such as the Supreme Court precedents legalizing same-sex marriage and employee LGBTQ rights. The Court in Dobbs overturned the 50-year-old legal precedent of Roe v. Wade, 410 U. S.

NJ Age Discrimination Attorney, Public IT Administrators and Age Discrimination


Institutional ageism is prevalent  in many tech companies and this has been true for at least decades with Mark Zuckerberg's widely-circulated "young people are just smarter" quote from 2007. IT workers experience more age discrimination than many other professions. However, this biased attitude toward older workers which persists across the IT sector, is not just limited to the private sector and Fortune 500 companies. IT Network administrators working for public entities such just as towns, counties and the state, experience the same prejudiced attitudes. They are all too frequently forced out of jobs and replaced by younger, though not more qualified, workers.

NJ Employee Attorney, I was a Worker Fired Then Told to Re-apply


Some unscrupulous employers are becoming savvier about avoiding lawsuits when they fire an employee for an illegal reason. One of the ruses that devious employers may implement is telling their employees that they are undergoing a massive overhaul of their business structure so that it will be an all-new model. They then tell the employees that they are terminated but encourage them to apply for a position within the new business model.

NJ Severance Attorney, My Severance Agreement Is Too Low, What Can I Do?


When terminated employees are offered a severance package, the severance agreement frequently contains an agreement for the employee to waive any potential legal claims and not sue the employer in return for receiving severance money. Many companies have written policies that stipulate the conditions and the amount of severance the company offers to employees. The company must abide by these policies and a typical amount of severance pay is one week for every year employed.

When Severance is Offered Not out of Generosity but Concerns about Illegal Acts.

Sometimes employers have concerns that an employee whom they are terminating is going to file a lawsuit against them, and they offer severance pay in return for the employee agreeing not to sue them under discrimination, whistleblower, wage and pay or other laws.

NJ Sex Discrimination Attorney, Female Employee Not Promoted, Employer Discriminates Against Weight, Bills Introduced to Prohibit Weight and Height Discrimination


For NJ employees who experience discrimination on the job because of their weight, relief is hopefully in sight with the introduction of legislature bills that would make discrimination based on an employee’s height or weight illegal, except in those extremely rare instances where a certain weight or height is a bona fide occupational qualification. Weight discrimination disproportionately affects women. It’s no secret that individuals, usually women, are too frequently discriminated against in hiring and promotions because of their weight. Pressure on individuals, particularly women, to maintain certain weight appearance standards contributes to eating disorders and lifelong health issues. No person should suffer discrimination on the job because the boss does not care for the employee’s weight or height.

NJ Age Discrimination Attorney, I’m the Oldest Employee and the Only Employee Fired


As the average age of those in the US workforce is getting older, there is a corresponding rise in ageism in the workplace. The oldest employees are the most disadvantaged in locating new employment if they are terminated, yet too often both private corporate and public employers will not hesitate to terminate even the oldest worker even though the worker is meeting the employer’s legitimate business expectations. If you were fired and think age may have been a factor, you may have a valid claim. Don’t sit on your rights.

If you are an older worker who was terminated while younger workers were retained, you should contact this office immediately for a free consultation.

NJ Employment Discrimination Lawyer, Could Court Overturn Constitutional Right of Privacy in Interracial Marriage and Return Issue to Individual States?


As I am sure my readers already know, in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Org., decided June 24, 2022, the US Supreme Court overturned the long-established precedent of a woman’s Constitutional right to an abortion, thereby returning the issue of abortion rights left to be decided by individual states. This gives rise to a vast discrepancy in the breadth of legal rights granted to women dependent on which state a woman resides in, although the facts of two such women may otherwise be identical.

Some legal scholars deduce that we may expect to see an impetus for other rights which are long-settled precedents by the US Supreme Court, to  be overturned and similarity returned to individual states, whose state courts would then decide the legal rights of men and women in those states.
