Our New Jersey employment lawyers want to make sure that you have access to the information and resources you need to protect your rights. An overview of employment law cases we frequently handle includes:
Racial Discrimination & HarassmentIn New Jersey, workers are protected against race-based discrimination and race-based harassment under state and federal labor laws. If you were fired, demoted, or experienced discrimination or harassment on the basis of your race, you may have a case.
Ethnic Discrimination & HarassmentBeyond protection against racial discrimination, state/federal laws protect workers based on ethnic background discrimination. Sadly, foreign workers are frequently subjected to discrimination or harassment in the workplace. This is illegal.
Sex DiscriminationAt Zatuchni & Associates, our New Jersey employment lawyers represent any worker who has suffered sex discrimination in the workplace. Although women are disproportionately affected by sex/gender discrimination, male employees also have the right to file this type of legal claim.
Sexual Harassment ClaimsSexual harassment can make a job unbearable, yet many who do speak out about it aren’t heard by their employers. We can help. Our New Jersey sexual harassment lawyers are standing by, ready to take immediate action to protect your rights.
Age Discrimination & HarassmentDiscrimination on the basis of age is illegal, but people over the age of 40 face it with startling regularity. We help employees across New Jersey understand their rights and evaluate their age discrimination claims.
Pregnancy DiscriminationProtections exist under the law for pregnant employees. It is incredibly important to know and understand your rights. The federal Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) provides strong legal protections. Our New Jersey pregnancy discrimination lawyers will protect your rights.
Wage & Hour DisputesThe federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires that workers be paid for the hours they work. Many, unfortunately, aren’t aware of their rights. At Zatuchni & Associates, we handle all types of wage and hour cases, including unpaid overtime claims.
Wrongful TerminationDespite New Jersey being an “at will” employment state, there are reasons for which your employer cannot fire you, including discrimination and retaliation.

Our Law Firm Handles the Full Range of Discrimination Claims in New Jersey
A significant portion of our employment law practice is dedicated to representing employees who were subject to unlawful discrimination in the workplace. Fairness matters. No job applicant or employee should be treated worse simply because of an immutable characteristic. You do not have to accept discrimination. We will fight back. Under the auspices of both state and federal law, we fight employers who single out, target or treat workers differently based on:
- Race/National Origin;
- Sexual Orientation or Perceived Sexual Orientation; and
- Military Service.
Unfortunately, workplace discrimination takes on many forms. While the issue of discrimination has received some much-needed additional attention in recent years, it remains an all-too-common problem in the workplace in New Jersey and throughout the United States. We routinely and successfully litigate discrimination claims based on wrongful termination, wrongful discipline, failure to promote, and other types of disparate treatment.
