Legal Answers
5 Questions Answered

Q. As a Black man, is being called a "Boy" in a confrontational manner considered discrimination?
A: It is impossible to know for sure whether the statement was meant to be discriminatory, especially without any context or other information. However, given the history of the use of that term for African Americans, it very well could be a discriminatory statement. You may want to try to schedule a consultation with an employment lawyer.
Q. What can I do if I was wrongfully terminated from my job?
A: The answer depends on a lot of factors. You should consider meeting with an employment lawyer to discuss your options, including whether you have a potential legal claim.
Q. What can I do about wrongful termination? Can I get in contact with someone to actually discuss all the details?
A: You should call an employment lawyer to try to schedule a consultation. For example, feel free to call me at 973 744-4000.
Q. If I am demoted and a younger employee is given my job is that discrimination?
A: The fact that you were demoted and someone who is significantly younger than you could suggest age discrimination. However, I would need a lot more information to be able to assess that potential claim. I suggest that you contact an employment lawyer to schedule a consultation.
Q. if a manger within a company bad mouths an employee to another manger within that company is that considered harassment?
A: In New Jersey employment law, something can only be harassment if the reason it happened was unlawful, such as if it is because of your age, race, gender, national origin, disability or another legally protected category. In addition, to be legally actionable harassment has to be severe (very bad) or pervasive (very frequent). While it sounds like it was unfair, I don't have enough information to evaluate whether what happened to you was harassment under New Jersey law.
