Employment Discrimination

Perhaps our children’s children will live in a world where discrimination based on a persons biological characteristics or affiliation will be eliminated. Until then, Zeff Law Firm will continue to fight to make workplaces and businesses honor the law of this land. Discrimination today exists in more subtle forms than in the last century, although it is just as harmful. When your employer discriminates against you based on your race, gender, age, religion, national origin, or disability, your employer is violating Federal and State laws. Learn More

 

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment still remains one of most common forms of discrimination in the workplace today. It can come in many forms, such as sexually inappropriate language, unwanted touching, and different treatment based on the sex of an employee. Quid pro quo sexual harassment also exists where someone rejects sexual advances by a co-worker or boss and is punished for it by being treated differently than others. Learn More

 

Whistleblower and CEPA

In the past few decades laws have been created to protect brave employees who blow the whistle on unlawful activities that happen in the workplace.  Both New Jersey and Pennsylvania have created laws that make it unlawful for an employer to retaliate against an employee who reports wrongful conduct.

Family and Medical Leave Act

Many employees are not aware of their rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act or FMLA.  If you or one of your close family members becomes ill you have a right under federal law to up to twelve (12) weeks leave from your job under the FMLA. Learn More

 

Civil Rights

The United States Constitution as well as state and local laws prevent the government from violating your civil rights. These laws protect everything from your right to free speech to your right not to be subjected to unlawful arrest or mistreatment by law enforcement. Learn More

 

National Labor Relations Act

The law prohibits an employer from interfering with employees’ right to unionize or join together in any way to improve hours, wages, or any other terms or conditions of their employment.  If an employer threatens employees or attempts to interfere with employees in any other way in the exercise of these rights, the employer may be in violation of the National Labor Relations Act or NLRA.

Fair Labor Standards Act

The Fair Labor Standards Act or FLSA creates rights for certain employees regarding issues like minimum wage and mandatory overtime pay when an employee works more than 40 hours in a week. Although many employees don’t realize it, even some salaried employees are entitled to overtime pay under the FLSA. Learn More

 

Disability discrimination

The Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) prevents both public and private employers from discriminating against an employee because of his or her disability. Learn More

 

Age Discrimination

The purpose of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (“ADEA”) is to promote employment of older persons based on their ability rather than age; to prohibit arbitrary age discrimination in employment; and to help employers and workers find ways of meeting problems arising from the impact of age on employment.
