Biography

Dicey, stressful workplace problems take their toll on employers and employees. Lisa Fried-Grodin has devoted her legal career to helping clients deal with these issues every day.

Lisa is a co-founder and partner of Meyers Fried-Grodin LLP, an employment law firm serving employers and employees in New Jersey and New York. Her representation of employees and employers gives her an understanding of the motivations, strategies and tactics used by both sides in problem-solving, negotiation and litigation. This gives her a unique perspective when representing clients and acting as an employment law mediator.

She has a passion for giving employees who have experienced discrimination, harassment and retaliation a voice and an action plan, and for guiding small to mid-size growing businesses on the right path.

Lisa represents clients in lawsuits and non-litigation matters regarding employee discipline, wrongful termination, sexual harassment, discrimination, sick and family leave, whistleblower claims, contract disputes, and wage and hour issues including overtime. She also drafts and advises on employee handbooks, separation agreements, noncompetes and other employment contracts, and conducts employment investigations.

Ms. Fried-Grodin has lectured at the Morris County Chamber of Commerce, Morris Essex Small Firm Networking Group, and New Jersey Institute of Continuing Legal Education’s Corporate Counsel Institute and Business Law Symposium, and has written articles on a variety of employment law issues that have appeared in her law firm's blog, New Jersey Law Journal, New York Law Journal and Employment Law 360.

Legal Answers
13 Questions Answered
Q. Can a person be discriminated because of their religion at their place of employment.
A: It is unlawful to discriminate against an employee based on their religion under both federal, NY and NJ discrimination law. You should consult with an employment attorney to discuss your matter further and get advice on how to address this.
Q. Can a sick note that my doctor wrote on his prescription pad with all his information on it be rejected by my employer?
A: If the note wasn't signed, that could be why the employer is questioning it. If that is not the case or your employer takes some adverse action due to you being out sick with Covid, you should talk with an employment lawyer.
Q. People in my close family has tested positive for Covid, I want to get tested for work but they are telling me to come
A: I would advise you to talk to a NJ employment lawyer to advise you on the situation.
