Can My Employer Fire Me Without Reason Or Notice?

Yes. New Jersey is an "employment at will" state, meaning that an employer may terminate the relationship at any time, without a reason, without cause. However, if the employee feels that he/she has been discriminated against based on religion, color, sex, national origin, age or disability he/she should contact the New Jersey Department of Law and Public Safety's Division on Civil Rights at (609) 292­4605.
