Wrongful Termination in Pennsylvania & New Jersey

In most cases, an employer can fire an employee for any non-discriminatory or non-retaliatory reason. However, if the reason for firing an employee is discriminatory or if the employee is fired in retaliation, such as firing an employee in retaliation for filing a discrimination complaint or a worker’s compensation claim or speaking on a matter of public concern, the employer may be in violation of the law.
