Under New Jersey common law, your employer cannot fire you in violation of a clear mandate of public policy. Such an action is a wrongful dismissal, also known as wrongful discharge or wrongful termination. This means that even if your employer did not violate a specific law in firing you, it was a wrongful termination if your employer violated a clear mandate of public policy. Sources of public policy include federal and state laws, as well as professional ethics codes and industry standards.
