Employment Discrimination

Our involvement in both sides of discrimination litigation has given us a unique ability to zero in on the key issues and decide upon an effective strategy. Our experienced lawyers have defended employers and represented employees in discrimination matters including race discrimination, age discrimination, sexual discrimination/gender discrimination, disability discrimination and whistleblower retaliation. Additionally, Evan L. Goldman is a Board Certified Civil Trial Attorney. We have comprehensive knowledge of the various state and federal laws applicable to employee rights and discrimination, including:

  • FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act)
  • FLA (Family Leave Act)
  • LAD (Law Against Discrimination)
  • ADA (American's with Disabilities Act)
  • CEPA (Conscientious Employee Protection Act - whistleblower protection)

We understand the injury that an unfair claim of discrimination can inflict upon the good will and the value of a business. We also recognize the emotional distress a victim who has been wrongfully discharged undergoes. Discrimination claims must be defended or prosecuted carefully and thoughtfully. Based in Bergen County, New Jersey, our discrimination lawyers have the knowledge and experience to protect the legitimate interests of an employer who has been unfairly accused of discriminatory treatment or to champion the rights of an innocent employee.

  • Employment agreements
  • Non-compete agreements
