New Jersey Workplace Harassment Lawyers

New Jersey Workplace Harassment LawyersNew Jersey Workplace Harassment Lawyers

You spend a significant amount of time in the workplace—many of us spend a third of our lives or more on the job, meaning that it is especially critical that you should feel safe and comfortable in the place where you work. Although this should be a given—something that we should all expect as a matter of course—many employers, unfortunately, fail to put into place safeguards designed to prevent workplace harassment, resulting in situations where employees may feel unsafe and uncomfortable at work.

You do not have to tolerate workplace harassment and should not have to be afraid to go into work each day. At Attorneys Hartman, Chartered, our experienced employment lawyers are passionate about protecting our clients’ rights when they have been subject to workplace harassment. You may have the right to hold your employer accountable for actionable workplace harassment and may even have the right to be compensated financially for the harm that the harassment has caused. If you have suffered from workplace harassment, call or contact our team of lawyers to explore options for proceeding with your case so that you can go to work each day without fear of harassment.

Workplace Harassment Under New Jersey and Federal Laws

Employees are protected from certain forms of workplace harassment under both New Jersey and federal law. Under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, employees cannot be harassed in the workplace based upon any one or more of the following protected categories:

  • Race or color
  • Religion/creed
  • National origin
  • Age
  • Gender/sex
  • Pregnancy
  • Marital status
  • Sexual orientation
  • Gender identity
  • Physical or mental disabilities
  • Certain types of blood traits

Workplace harassment generally falls within one of two categories: hostile work environment and quid pro quo harassment (usually in the context of sexual harassment). Although harassment based upon sex is one of the most common forms of workplace harassment, it is far from being the only type of workplace harassment that is actionable. As long as the workplace harassment can be shown to be both severe and pervasive, you have the legal right to take action to stop the harassing behavior. To show that workplace harassment is severe, it is generally necessary to focus on the impact that the harassment had on your life, while we must show that the workplace harassment happened on an ongoing basis to satisfy the “pervasive” element.

Workplace harassment can take on many forms, including:

  • Physical harassment
  • Emotional or psychological harassment
  • Sexual harassment
  • Verbal harassment

When any form of harassment is made on the basis of a protected class, such as sex, gender or race, you have the right to stop that harassment and may even have the right to compensation from an employer who failed to take steps to prevent workplace harassment.
