Wrongful Termination Attorneys

Because New Jersey is an at-will employment state an employer can end employment at any time, barring contractual issues. Additionally, an employer can fire an employee for any reason.

That said, there are certain cases where the way that an employer fires an employee may be illegal. If you believe that your former workplace fired you for unlawful reasons, it is important to understand your rights — you may be entitled to significant compensation.

We at the law firm of Escandon, Fernicola, Anderson & Covelli are prepared to bring our decades of employment law experience to aggressively represent you in any wrongful termination case. This includes:

  • Firings and layoffs that constitute workplace discrimination against a member of a protected class as defined in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, including discrimination based on:
    • Age
    • Sex
    • Nationality
    • Sexual orientation
    • Race
    • Sexual harassment resulting in constructive discharge
    • Whistleblower claims
  • Employment contract violation
  • Warning procedure violation
  • Retaliatory action

Our attorneys will take the time to work directly with you to understand all circumstances regarding your termination. From there, we will take action to help you obtain the compensation and accountability you deserve. We encourage you to take decisive action and get in touch as soon as possible to protect your rights.
