The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination protects people from discrimination in employment, housing, and places of public accommodation, based on their:1. Disability, 2. Race or color, 3. Religion or creed, 4. National origin, nationality, or ancestry, 5. Sex, pregnancy, or breastfeeding, 6. Sexual orientation, 7. Gender identity or expression, 8. Marital status or domestic partnership/civil union status, 9. Liability for military service, 10. In housing: familial status and source of lawful income used for rental or mortgage payments; 11. In employment: age, atypical hereditary cellular or blood trait, genetic information, and the refusal to submit to a genetic test or make available to an employer the results of a genetic test. Federal laws, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, also offer protections and remedies to those who have been discriminated against. Similarly, Pennsylvania and New York have enacted laws similar to New Jersey’s which offer protections employees based on a wide range of protected classes.
