Types of Discrimination
- National Origin
- Sexual Orientation
An employer may not harass an employee because of that person's age, disability, national origin, pregnancy, race, color, religion or gender. Sexual harassment is one type of unlawful harassment. Workplace harassment can also include offensive remarks and other wrongful conduct. Although the law does not prohibit simple teasing, offhand comments, or isolated incidents that are not very serious, harassment is illegal when it is so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile or offensive work environment or when it results in an adverse employment decision, such as the victim being fired or demoted. The Law Offices of Beth C. Rogers, LLC of East Hanover, New Jersey, represents victims of workplace harassment.
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.
