New Jersey employers and employees sometimes confuse leave rights

Employees in New Jersey have the right to take a leave without losing their job under both the New Jersey Family Leave Act and federal Family and Medical Leave Act. Both laws offer 12 weeks, and if an employee is fired for taking a qualified leave, that would be wrongful termination. New Jersey's law pertains solely for time off to care for a family member or newly born or adopted child, while the federal law also applies taking time off for a medical condition in addition to childbirth, adoption and caring for a family member.

Wrongful termination lawsuit hits New Jersey energy company

Big business sometimes means big money. Some large corporations in New Jersey collect more money in a day than many people make as their yearly salary. Some of these big businesses have more than making money to worry about, especially when poor business ethics may be involved. Employees can sometimes fight back when such ethics result in wrongful termination, discrimination or harassment warranting legal action.
