can a employer in new jersey delete your position then rehire for the same position?
Hello I am a licensed attorney here to help you with your question, please review my response and do not hesitate to ask for clarification.
Unless you are part of a Union or you have an employment contract, an employer in NJ is allowed to terminate an employee at any time, for any reason. Also, the employer is allowed to rehire an employee at any time as well.
but they deleted the position was the reason for termination of the production manager then rehired a production manager
The employer can do what they wish, if the employee that was first terminated, was terminated due to their age, race, gender or other protected civil right, and the employer lied to them stating the position was terminated.
And then hired a younger worker or one of a different gender or race, then their may be a discrimination issue.
the employee was a female whos job description was terminated then replaced later with a male with lower pay?
Then the employer actions may be gender discrimination, and th fact they hired a male, and terminated her can be used a strong evidence. The employee needs to file an EEOC complaint for gender discrimination as soon as possible to start a discrimination case.
ok does it make a difference that they deleted the job position the rehired for a position that was deleted
Yes, that could serve as evidence for discrimination.
