New Jersey Wrongful Termination Attorneys

Your employer cannot fire you for an illegal reason such as discrimination or in retaliation for exercising a workplace right.

The law firm of Lombardi and Lombardi, P.A. is a proven advocate for workers in all types of employment discrimination litigation, including wrongful termination. Call today for a free case evaluation if you believe your termination was unlawful.

What Is Wrongful Termination?

Termination is considered wrongful if it is done for an illegal reason. Examples include:

Many wrongful termination cases begin as another type of employment law case such as sexual harassment or discrimination. Rather than deal with the problem, the employer may fire the employee who complains about the harassment or discrimination. In these cases, you may have two claims against your employer: one for the underlying claim and one for retaliatory discharge.
