Why Hire an Employment Law Attorney?

If you are lucky, you will never need to hire an employment law attorney. However, there are a variety of work-related issues that many employees face on a daily basis. Some employees seek counsel from employment attorneys simply because they are unaware of their rights.

Below are some of the reasons you may wish to contact a NJ employment lawyer:

  • You are the victim of age discrimination: According to The Age Discrimination in Employment Act, it is unlawful to discriminate against employees who are 40 years of age or older. The Act does not protect workers who are under the age of 40, however.
  • An employer or fellow worker is sexually harassing you: Sexual harassment in any form is illegal. If you believe you are the victim of sexual harassment, seek legal aid immediately.
  • Your employer is discriminating against you because you are disabled: The Americans with Disabilities Act requires that employers make reasonable accommodations for employees who are disabled. If you are being discriminated against based on your condition, a lawyer can fight for your rights.
  • You have a severance agreement issue: Experienced lawyers can review any severance agreement your employer offers you to ensure it is sound and that signing it is in your best interests.
  • You need help reviewing an employment contract: A knowledgeable lawyer can provide you with invaluable advice about employment contracts and non-compete agreements. In addition, a savvy attorney can ensure your employer is holding up his or her end of your employment contract.
