Know your rights if you lose your job in New York or New Jersey

In New York or New Jersey, unless you have an employment contract, you are likely working “at will” for your employer. This means that they may fire you or let you go without a valid reason. However, there are both local and federal laws which protect employees from wrongful termination such as retaliation or discrimination. For example, there are whistleblower protection laws in place to protect an employee who reports illegal activity or unsafe working conditions to authorities. You also may not be fired for attempting to form a union with fellow employees. And an employer may not discriminate on the grounds of race, age, gender, national origin, disability, sex, or religion.

Protecting yourself against workplace discrimination

In a perfect world, workers in New York and throughout the United States could work in safe working environments, free of abuse, harassment and discrimination. Unfortunately, humans are not always kind to their fellow man and woman, and workplace discrimination exists.
