Discrimination Takes Many Forms
Employment discrimination can take many forms. Some are obvious, such as refusing to hiring a person based on their gender or the color of their skin. Other forms of discrimination may be more discreet, such as discrimination based on pregnancy or age.
Our employment law firm in Hackensack, New Jersey, represents clients who have been wrongfully terminated or suffered harassment based on age, race, gender, or a disability. We also have significant experience handling whistleblower cases related to these issues.
Employers May Have Discrimination Policies
Employers often have discrimination policies, some of which are in your employment contract. If you feel these policies have been violated, bring us a copy of your contract or employee handbook. Our attorneys will thoroughly examine the documents and determine the best way to pursue your claim.
