Remedies for Religious Discrimination

The laws prohibiting discrimination provide a victim of religious discrimination with a number of different and effective remedies. If you are the victim of religious discrimination in the workplace in New Jersey, you may be able to secure the position to which you were illegally denied. Back pay along with interest can be awarded. In addition, you may be awarded all employee benefits that you should have received to date.

Compensatory damages you may receive include monetary award for humiliation, pain and suffering, and any emotional distress caused by the illegal discrimination. The reasonable fees of your lawyer can also be awarded as well as expenses incurred when pursuing the complaint.

For religious discrimination in housing, you may be able to move into the rental that you were denied, or be able to purchase the home you were unfairly unable to buy. In addition the costs you incurred while looking for another residence can be awarded. Compensation for humiliation, pain and suffering, and other emotional distress may be granted. The reasonable fees of your lawyer can also be part of your award.

Penalties may also be imposed for violation of the Law Against Discrimination. These include a fine of up to $10,000 for the first violation of the law. A second violation carries a fine of up to $25,000 and a third violation can result in a fine of $50,000.

Punitive damages for egregious actions can be sought only in Superior Court.

If you believe you have been the victim of religious discrimination, contact New Jersey employment lawyers for help.
