New Jersey Employment, Discrimination and Harassment Attorneys


As employment and discrimination attorneys we know that to be subject to an unlawful situation in your workplace can be a traumatic experience. For this reason, we are here to assist you and let you know your rights.

Our experience as class action attorneys has allowed us to have a deep insight of different types of job positions, workplaces and their rules, procedures and regulations, in such diverse industries as the metal industry, the drilling, the transportation, the appliance or the banking industry, among others.

The core of our success is based on our drive and perseverance to give the people, who have been unlawfully treated in their workplace, their rights back. At Swartz Swidler, our focus is on you. Our Employment Law Attorneys, Richard Swartz and Justin Swidler, and their team, will work with you to promote your interests. We will maintain constant contact and will always be prepared to discuss your case.


Our wrongful termination attorneys understand that getting fired can be a traumatic experience. We understand that for many people, a job is much more than a paycheck. It is part of your identity. It is natural to question the motivations for your termination. Are you being given a truthful statement as to the reason for your termination? Is your employer lying about why you were fired? Were you fired illegally?

Our New Jersey and Pennsylvania wrongful termination attorneys are here to answer your questions, free of charge. We offer free legal consultations to discuss your rights with you. The fact is, every day employers wrongfully discharge employees, in violation of federal and state law. Employees in New Jersey and Pennsylvania have significant legal protections. Let us help you. Please call us today for a free legal consultation.

Have you been denied wages?

The unfortunate reality is that millions of employees face discrimination every day. If you were terminated for a discriminatory reason, our employment lawyers can help you recover from the financial and emotional loss that your employer’s discriminatory conduct has caused. For a free consultation, call us today and speak with one of our experienced employment attorneys.

Are you being subject to workplace harassment?

Under federal and state law, discriminatory harassment which creates a “hostile work environment” is illegal. No person should be forced to endure discrimination and harassment, but such discrimination and harassment is made significantly worse when it occurs at the job. If you are being harassed, you will need a powerful advocate to ensure that your rights are protected. Give us a call to see if one of our employment attorneys can represent you.
