NJ Supreme Court Voids Filing Deadline: An Interview with Carmine IannacconeEmployment Law This Week June 27, 2016
Employment Law This Week (Episode 32: Week of June 27, 2016) has released bonus footage of its interview with Carmine Iannaccone, Managing Director and Member of the Firm at Epstein Becker Green.
As Mr. Iannaccone discusses, the New Jersey Supreme Court has voided a time limit on discrimination claims. A furniture store employee filed a discrimination claim nine months after he was fired, alleging he was terminated in retaliation for filing a worker’s comp claim. While the state of New Jersey has a two-year time limit for filing claims under the Law Against Discrimination, the worker had signed a job application with the company that imposed a six-month time limit. In a landmark decision, the New Jersey Supreme Court reversed appellate and trial decisions in this case, ruling that the contract violates public policy.
