NJ Employment Attorneys Fight Fraud and Misrepresentation
Aggressive representation for professionals victimized by deceptive hiring
Does this sound familiar? Your career is on the rise, and you’re attracting attention from competitors in your industry. A company recruits you, presenting itself as the next Apple and promising all sorts of eye-popping perks, so naturally you accept. Six weeks later, you realize you’ve been sold a false bill of goods and your position at the company is untenable. You’re on your way out, but to where? And how much will your pit stop at this failing enterprise damage your career? It’s time to call Deutsch Atkins, P.C. As one of Northern New Jersey’s largest employment litigation law firms, we have the experience and resources to fight for senior-level executives who’ve been victimized by fraudulent recruitment and hiring practices.
Help for “at will” employees in complex, hard-to-prove employment litigation
Employers all too often lure executive, managerial and professional employees away from good, secure positions with extravagant promises of increased compensation, promotional opportunities, decision-making authority or stock options. Then the company fails to fulfill those promises and terminates the employee for a false reason, such as poor performance or because “it’s just not working out.” But what can you do? Your employment contract makes it clear you’re an “at will” employee.
The key to asserting your rights is to prove that the employer made misrepresentations. It might be simple negligence, but if the representations were made intentionally, the company has engaged in fraud. Either way, you may be entitled to damages. Misrepresentation trumps “at will” employment.
If your employer negligently or fraudulently misled you, causing you to suffer economic losses and/or termination, you have rights, and Deutsch Atkins can help you enforce them. Employer fraud and misrepresentation may take the form of:
- Misleading statements
- False representations
- Nondisclosure of material facts
Remedies for employer misrepresentation and fraud can include:
- Monetary damages — Your economic losses as a result of accepting the offer and/or being wrongly terminated
- Value of lost stock options — Benefits that did not vest because of your premature termination
- Letters of recommendation — Makes it clear that you were not at fault
- Nondisparagement agreements — Agreement not to disclose unfavorable information about each other
Our employment law attorneys have successfully represented executive, managerial and professional employees who were misled by their employers during contract negotiations and then terminated.
