Law Against Discrimination (LAD)

New Jersey's Law Against Discrimination, or LAD, is one of the toughest statutes against workplace discrimination in the country. It makes it unlawful for an employer to discriminate against an employee because of his or her race, religion, age, sex/gender, disability, national origin, marital status, or sexual orientation. New Jersey's discrimination law includes progressive protection for pregnant women. We have been protecting employees under this statute since it was enacted into law.

Discrimination can happen during any phase of employment including hiring, compensation, promotions, discipline, and termination. If you are being discriminated against, sexually harassed, wrongfully discharged or forced to endure a hostile work environment, you should contact an experienced lawyer as soon as possible. We can help you protect your rights if you have been the victim of unlawful discrimination, including:

  • Sexual discrimination
  • Disability discrimination
  • Race discrimination
  • Age discrimination
  • Religious discrimination
  • Discrimination based on sexual preference
  • Pregnancy discrimination
  • Marital status discrimination
  • Gender identity discrimination
  • Ethnicity discrimination
