Do you have skills that are valuable to your employer?  Despite your abilities, have you been treated unfairly on the job?  Do you think that the way you are treated at work has to do with your race, religion, gender, or some other part of who you are? You may be the victim of illegal employment discrimination.

Workers all over Essex County, in towns and cities such as Newark, East Orange, Orange, Harrison, Belleville, and Nutley have been discriminated against by their employers. Not only is employment discrimination unfair to hard workers, it is also illegal, and there are serious consequences for companies and businesses that violate the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (LAD).

The NJ LAD protects workers from discrimination that is based on their race, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, religion, disability, or veteran status.  The law also protects pregnant women and those who are perceived to be something that they are not.  If you have been discriminated against due to any of your inherent characteristics or think that you might have been the victim of discrimination for another reason, you should contact the Mark Law Firm.
