The N.J. Supreme Court has been asked by 27 environmental, labor, and community organizations representing more than half a million New Jerseyans to uphold the state’s whistleblower law that protects employees from employer retaliation when they report violations of the law.

In a friend of the court brief the groups cite multiple cases in which employees have been protected by the courts under the Conscientious Employee Protection Act (CEPA). This makes it more likely that employees will report without fear of retaliation violations affecting public safety and health, the environment, and financial security of individual households and businesses.
