Laws exist to make sure that employees are not discriminated against on the basis of age, a disability, ethnicity, gender, race or religion. We at Sheffet & Dvorin, PC are proud to assist clients in enforcing those laws and securing fair treatment. If you or an employer whose employee filed a frivolous lawsuit, or if you are an individual who has been wrongfully terminated or been treated unfairly in violation of any of these laws we encourage you to seek out our legal counsel. Federal and New Jersey employment laws and regulations generally require the employer to pay the employee’s attorney fees and costs in cases where the employer acts illegally. Therefore, you may be able to retain legal counsel on a contingency basis and/or at no out of pocket cost to you until the litigation ends.
