Understanding Your Employment Law Rights

Although, in general, companies can hire and fire employees without the need to justify their decisions, under New Jersey and federal law, you do have specific rights when it comes to your employment. Those rights include:

  • The right to work free from discrimination and harassment
  • The right to work free from retaliation for reporting or filing a discrimination claim against your employer
  • The right to a safe workplace
  • The right to fair compensation
  • The right to privacy

When an employer violates your rights, you may have a legal claim to recover compensation for your losses. If you feel that your rights have been violated, it’s time to talk to an experienced attorney, who can help you understand all of your rights and help you determine the next steps to take.
