Did Your Employer React Adversely To Your Filing A Workers' Compensation Claim?

The New Jersey workers' compensation law prohibits employers from retaliating against employees for seeking workers' compensation for workplace injuries.

The federal Family and Medical Leave Act and the New Jersey Family Leave Act both prohibit employers from retaliating against employees for asking for or taking family leave (meaning time off to take care of a seriously ill relative or for the birth or adoption of a child). The federal law also prohibits employers from retaliating against employees for asking for or taking medical leave (meaning time off from work for the employee's own serious medical condition).
