Workplace Discrimination Attorneys in Moorestown, NJ: Discriminating Against Injustice with a Dedicated Fight for Fairness in Burlington County, Camden County, Gloucester County, and Throughout South Jersey

Employment discrimination cases can be particularly complex because, in most cases, the employer rarely takes obvious and blatant action that amounts to clearly actionable discrimination. Instead, in this day and age, employment discrimination tends to happen subtly over time and claims for employment discrimination are often based on circumstantial evidence that may be subject to interpretation. Because of this, the guidance of an experienced employment discrimination lawyer is particularly important in establishing your right to compensation after you have been subject to discrimination in the workplace.

At Attorneys Hartman, Chartered, we have over five decades’ worth of collective experience successfully helping victims of employment discrimination stop workplace discrimination and recover the financial compensation they need to attempt to make up for past discrimination. Employment discrimination can derail your career significantly, both with respect to current opportunities and your future success. Our dedicated employment discrimination lawyers are here to help you stop the discrimination and get your career back on track.

Establishing an Employment Discrimination Claim in New Jersey

New Jersey Employment Discrimination LawyersNew Jersey Employment Discrimination Lawyers

To proceed with a claim for employment discrimination under federal law, it is first necessary to file a claim with the equal employment opportunity commission (EEOC) within 180 days of the discrimination that occurred. In most cases, this claim will be filed after you have already exhausted the employer’s procedures for reporting discrimination, in cases where the employer fails to take adequate steps to remedy past discrimination or prevent ongoing discrimination from occurring. The claim must include:

  • Basic information about the employer
  • The number of employees employed by the employer
  • A description of the employment discrimination that occurred
  • Details such as dates and times when the discrimination occurred

In order for the employment discrimination to be actionable, you must also show that you were discriminated against as a member of a protected class, meaning that you were discriminated against based on:

  • Age
  • Sex
  • Gender identity
  • Race
  • Ethnicity
  • National origin
  • Religion
  • Pregnancy
  • Whistleblower status
  • Sexual orientation
  • Veteran status
  • Disability

Employment Discrimination in Mount Laurel Comes in Many Forms

Employment discrimination can occur in any number of ways but essentially occurs when your career is harmed in some way because of your membership in a protected class. Some common examples of employment discrimination include:

  • Being passed over for a promotion even though you are qualified, simply because of your membership in a protected class,
  • Wrongful termination because of your membership in a protected class,
  • Harassment based on age, race, sex or gender identity,
  • Being forced to take on tasks that are not in your job description, especially when others who are not members of a protected class and hold the same job title are not required to complete those tasks,
  • Demotion in your job position,
  • Being underpaid compared to others who hold the same job title,
  • Denial of reasonable accommodations to allow you to work with a disability.
