Employee Retaliation Attorneys in New Jersey
In Trouble for Whistleblowing? Enforce Your Rights
Whistleblowers are true unsung heroes of our society. It is tempting to look the other way when you see an employer dumping illegal toxic waste or allowing sexual harassment to go on unchecked in the workplace. Sometimes complaining to authorities causes problems for whistleblowers in the short term.
If you have been fired or demoted due to your whistleblowing activities, you have the right to retain an attorney to protect your rights.

In New Jersey whistleblowers are protected under the Conscientious Employee Protection Act or CEPA, and federal law. Employers are prohibited from punishing whistleblowers in the following ways:
- Firing or demoting
- Laying off
- Denying benefits, overtime pay or a well-earned promotion
- Threatening or harassing the whistleblower
- Cutting pay or work hours
- Reassigning the whistleblower to a less lucrative position
If you have been fired due to your whistleblowing activities, you may be able to file a wrongful termination claim. If your employer has made life at work so bad you had to quit, you may be entitled to pursue a constructive discharge claim.
