People take a huge risk when they blow the whistle on illegal actions. Retaliation can include less desirable work. Employees can be ostracized, scorned or ridiculed. They may even be fired. For the whistleblower, that behavior constitutes retaliation — and wrongful termination. And retaliation for this activity is against the law.
If you have suffered whistleblower retaliation, whether via wrongful termination or any other negative action, the Mark Law Firm, can help you stand up and enforce your rights.
New Jersey is an "at-will" employment state. That means your employer can fire you at any time for almost any reason at all
But if you can show that you were fired for reporting illegal activity, you have a strong case for wrongful termination .
How do I prove I was wrongfully terminated?
The courts require that you show four things in order to prove that you have suffered wrongful termination through retaliation.
(1) I reasonably believe that my employer's conduct was violating either a law, rule or regulation,
(2) I performed whistleblowing activities by disclosing, refusing to participate or testifying against my employer,
(3) As a result of my disclosure of the illegal activities, an adverse employment action was taken against me, and
(4) There is a causal connection between the whistleblower activity and the adverse employment action, leading to repercussions on the job.
