As number of whisteblowers grow, so does the retaliation

Whistleblowing is not an easy stance to take. Employees need to muster a lot of courage to come forward and point out wrongdoings at their workplace. The good news, the amount of people coming forward to report misconduct is increasing. But the bad news, the rate at which companies are retaliating against those whistleblowing employees is also increasing.

A recent survey showed that even though there are less incidents of misconduct being reported, the whistleblowers who are coming forward are doing so in greater numbers. Workers are most likely coming forward not only because it is the right thing to do, but they feel they can get help and be protected. In New Jersey, the Conscientious Employee Protection Act is a law that protects employees from retaliatory action against them from an employer.

Non-Competes In New Jersey

Everyone switches jobs, at one point or another. Millennials are increasing the pace, with our generation averaging less than five years per job. But switching jobs is not all about new opportunities, a higher salary, and greater prospects. As always, there are legal considerations that could get in the way of a new and prosperous career.

Non-Compete Agreements can prevent employees who are switching jobs from utilizing client contacts, trade secrets, confidential information and customer relationships. Employers can issue a valid non-compete in a variety of circumstances, such as with an offer of employment, a promise of continued employed, a change in the terms of employment. Typically, you can find your non-compete located in your employment contract.
