Employment Law Cases We Take On in Marlton

Our legal team has experience helping clients throughout Marlton resolve a broad range of employment law matters, including:

Sexual Harassment

Fondling, persistent unwanted advances, sexual language or jokes, and the display of sexually explicit graphics or photos are all examples of unacceptable behaviors in the workplace. If a manager, co-worker, client, or customer commits any of these acts, then you can file a claim for sexual harassment. Both men and women can be victims of sexual harassment, and it knows no gender.


We understand that people spend most of the day in the workplace. While some employees think their workplace is a source of inspiration, motivation, pride, and fulfillment, this can also make some workers reluctant to speak up against unfair or unlawful treatment they experience or witness because they fear being fired, demoted, or harassed. Burnham Douglass Attorneys At Law proudly fights to protect the labor rights of clients facing workplace retaliation, and we will gladly help pursue the compensation you deserve for your struggles.

Employment Contracts

Whether you need a legal professional to review, negotiate, or resolve disputes regarding employment contracts, we have the resources you need to make sure your best interests are protected. From non-competes to confidentiality agreements, Burnham Douglass Attorneys At Law can advise you on the pros and cons of an agreement.

Wrongful Termination

It is illegal for employers to fire workers for discriminatory reasons, or out of retaliation for protected actions like reporting workplace harassment or violations of the law. Wrongful termination claims can be filed under various laws, such as the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD) and the Conscientious Employee Protection Act (CEPA).

Whistleblower Actions

A whistleblower is an employee who files a report on the unlawful actions of their employer. Whistleblowers who file a qui tam claim under the False Claims Act may be entitled to substantial monetary awards. If you file a report on the unlawful actions of your employer, then you are legally protected from retaliation. Contact us today if you need help exposing unethical activity or conduct in your workplace.


It is unlawful for employers to discriminate against employees based on their age, gender, race, religion, and disability. Has your employer denied a promotion, demoted, or fired you because of one of these factors? Then contact an employment attorney at our firm to learn more about how you can hold your employer accountable for discrimination in the workplace.

Wage & Hour Disputes

If your employer has violated state and federal wage and hour laws, then our lawyers can help you build a case to recover the lost wages you are owed. We have experience pursuing claims related to unpaid overtime wages, illegally withheld benefits, refusal of valid leave requests, and more.

Hostile Work Environment

If you are experiencing repeated harassment from co-workers or management that makes it difficult to perform your work duties, then you can hold your employer legally accountable for failing to take action to prevent a hostile work environment.
