Retaliation

It is unlawful in New Jersey for an employer to take retaliatory action against employees who "blow the whistle" on their employers. The law protects employees who either refuse to participate in illegal activity or disclose or threaten to disclose to a public body an activity, policy, or practice of the employer that the employee reasonably believes is in violation of law or of public policy concerning public health, safety, or welfare.
