- Of Counsel
If you feel you were retaliated against for blowing the whistle, Mason, Griffin & Pierson, P.C. can help. New Jersey’s Conscientious Employee Protection Act (CEPA) protects employees who report or threaten to report illegal or unethical activity, also known as being a whistleblower. As long as you engage in this activity in good faith, you cannot be harassed, terminated, or retaliated against for doing so. The attorneys have represented many employees with CEPA claims and achieved excellent results for clients. If you are being harassed in retaliation for engaging in protected conduct (such as complaining about illegal discrimination, or blowing the whistle on illegal activity), then you may also have a claim under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (LAD). The firm’s goal is to learn more information from you about what is happening in the workplace and to provide you with advice about options for moving forward. The attorneys may be able to negotiate a resolution on your behalf or, if the matter warrants it, to file a lawsuit to recover economic and emotional damages you have suffered.
