Employment Discrimination and Litigation

Javerbaum Wurgaft Hicks Kahn Wikstrom & Sinins litigates claims to protect the rights of employees who have been subjected to unlawful treatment by their employers. Unlawful treatment by an employer can take several forms including discrimination, harassment, and retaliatory discharge. Often, this results in termination, demotion, or similar adverse treatment by the employer. Javerbaum Wurgaft Hicks Kahn Wikstrom & Sinins is committed to protecting employees’ rights and seeking recovery for damages arising from such unlawful treatment.

New Jersey and Federal law prohibits an employer from discriminating against an employee based on his or her Race; Age; Gender; Handicap or disability; Sexual preference; Ethnic background; or Religious belief.

Unlawful treatment also comes in the form of sexual harassment by the employer–whether it is direct sexual harassment aimed at the employee which is known as quid pro quo harassment, or in the form of general sexual conduct by other employees which alters the conditions of employment and renders the work environment hostile or abusive. This is known as hostile work environment harassment.

The law also prohibits an employer from taking any adverse action against an employee for “blowing the whistle” or refusing to follow orders which would threaten the health of employees or the public or that would violate the law.

The firm’s employment attorneys have obtained numerous settlements/verdicts in discrimination, harassment, and CEPA (whistleblower) cases, including:
