Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
HelloThis is Samuel. I am sorry to hear of this situation. Why was he terminated and what information can I provide for you in this regard, please?
Thank you. I am sorry that he has been terminated. Unfortunately, NJ is what is called an "At Will" employment state. And so if he was not fired because of discrimination such as his race, religion, age, national origin or a disability, and if the company is in compliance with its own policy, there is nothing illegal about the termination.
If the company has a policy that he has violated, he can legally be terminated.
And so I suggest you look at this termination policy. If there are no processes in place for "warnings" or "appeals" and they have treated him the same in his termination as any other employee then there is no discrimination and the termination is legal.
If I've missed anything that you needed or you have other questions, please let me know here. Otherwise, a Positive rating ensures I get credit for my time.
