South Jersey Lawyers For Your Discrimination Claim
Since 1986, the employment discrimination lawyers at Garber Law have been representing hard workers in Camden County and throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania who believe they have been the victims of unfair labor practices in the workplace. Employers (private and public) are not allowed to discriminate against employees because of:
- Marital status
- Disability (including HIV and AIDS)
- National origin
- Political views
- Genetic information – such as refusal to take a genetic test
- Veteran status
- Sexual orientation
- Taking family leave
You May Be Entitled To Damages
In discrimination cases, the main aim is to get your job back. Claimants may also demand financial damages. The goal is to make sure the employee is treated as if they never lost their job in the first place. In short, they should be treated financially as if the discrimination had not occurred. They may also be entitled to damages for pain and humiliation, attorney’s fees and punitive damages.
Where Are Employment Discrimination Cases Handled?
Discrimination cases can be brought before the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Council), which is a federal agency, or in state agencies such as the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, or the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights. Claimants can also bring claims in the courts of New Jersey and in Pennsylvania. Some of the factors that may determine where claims are brought are:
- Type of discriminatory conduct
- The size of the employer
- If jury trials are permitted
- The type of damages allowed
