English-only rules may be workplace discrimination

Many immigrants in New Jersey speak other languages besides English while they are working. Foreign-born workers may use the language that they are most comfortable with to speak with coworkers or customers who also speak that language. Some employers try to prevent workers from using other languages by imposing English-only rules.

Do you have leverage to negotiate your separation agreement?

Many employment relationships, even those that are at will, are framed by contractual relationships. The employment agreement might specify the work duties, employment benefits and other terms at the outset, and a separation agreement might describe how that relationship will end.

Pretext might disguise employment discrimination

Federal and state lawmakers have worked hard to provide legal protections against employment discrimination to workers. For example, those protections can shield whistle blowers that come forward to report an employer’s unlawful actions. Federal and state laws also protect employees against wrongful termination on several enumerated categories, as well as against retaliation for reporting or filing a claim of discrimination or harassment.
