Schorr & Associates of Cherry Hill, NJ

For over 20 years, Schorr & Associates has defended and protected the rights of employees. We handle matters of discrimination, wrongful termination, whistle blowing, retaliation and many other employment issues. We also represent employees who are confused or having problems with contracts such as severance agreements, non-compete agreements, and arbitration agreements. If you have been terminated and you are having trouble obtaining unemployment benefits, we may be able to help you with that as well. Our attorneys fight hard for our clients and we always provide a patient and understanding ear

The Family Leave Act

The Federal Family and Medical Leave Act provides that an employee’s job must be protected for up to 12 weeks if the employee or an employee’s family member has a serious health condition requiring care. But you are only entitled to Family Medical Leave Act protection if you work for a company that has 50 or more employees within 75 miles of your location, you’ve worked for the company for one year, and you’ve worked at least 1250 hours during that year. There is further protection under the New Jersey Family Leave Act that provides up to 12 weeks of job protection to care for a family member. In some circumstances, an employee can be eligible for leave under both the NJ Family Leave Act and the Federal Family and Medical Leave Act and can be eligible for up to 24 weeks of job protected leave. For example, a pregnant woman may be eligible for up to 12 weeks of FMLA leave for her pregnancy and then within 2 years after giving birth may be able to exercise up to 12 weeks of NJ family leave to bond with the child. And believe it or not, the father under the NJ family leave act may also be eligible for leave! These are very important laws; if you believe your employer has violated these laws, give us a call for a free initial consultation.

Disability Discrimination at Work

The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination and the Americans with Disabilities Act protect against discrimination on the basis of disability. To qualify as a disability under these laws, the health condition does not need to be a permanent disability. Employers are required to engage in an interactive process to determine whether reasonable accommodation for your disability can be provided and must provide reasonable accommodations. Employers cannot take adverse action against you, including termination, because of your disability. If you suffer from a health condition and are having problems at work because of it, give us a call. These cases require expertise and investigation to pursue, and we will work hard to protect your rights. We provide a free consultation and look forward to hearing from you.

If you Have an Employment Issue You Need An Attorney

Handling an employment matter can be very difficult. It is confusing, there are court rules that are very difficult to follow, and there are administrative rules. There are a lot of hoops that need to be jumped through. We have handled many matters for people who have come to us after they have tried to handle the matter themselves only to find out they have made a mistake that can’t be rectified. We can help protect you from that. Just give us a call. We will talk about your matter and we will decide whether or not if this is something that you can handle yourself or whether this is something that an attorney can help you through. Give us a call, it’s a free consultation. We’d love to hear from you!
