Green Savits Granted Amicus Status by New Jersey Supreme Court

Employment Attorneys Serving Northern and Central New Jersey

On October 12, 2017, the New Jersey Supreme Court granted Jon Green's and Laura LoGiudice's motion for amicus curiae status on behalf of the New Jersey chapter of the National Employee Lawyer's Association in Noren v. Heartland Payment Systems, Inc.  The case involves how attorney's fees are to be awarded where an employer wins at trial a breach of employment contract claim and a New Jersey state whistleblower claim.   The issues are technical and somewhat convoluted but are important in enforcing New Jersey's whistleblower statute which allows for attorney's fees to the employee's attorney who has successfully brought a whistleblower claim. A decision is expected in 2018.
