Understanding the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination
About this Program
New Jersey’s analog to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (“NJLAD”), a “cutting edge” statute to which other progressive states look for guidance. Labor and employment attorney Jonathan Meyers unpacks this unique law which has made New Jersey an unusually favorable jurisdiction for claims by aggrieved employees. Throughout this presentation, Mr. Meyers provides an excellent primer for New Jersey attorneys and out-of-state practitioners bringing or defending an NJLAD claim as pro hac vice counsel. From choosing the proper New Jersey forum and venue and the scope of NJLAD coverage, to the proof structure in discharge and discrimination cases, Mr. Meyers breaks down every element of the NJLAD with reference to important New Jersey discrimination case law. Concluding with a discussion of the interplay between unemployment and NJLAD litigation and various ethical considerations, this important course will equip viewers with everything they need to know about bringing or defending a discrimination claim under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination.
