New Jersey: The Supreme Court Bars Employees From Reviving Time-Barred Retaliation Claims With The Continuing Violation Doctrine (January 2010)
This month, in Roa v. LAFE, A-72-08, the New Jersey Supreme Court issued a decision barring employees from reviving time-barred retaliation claims under the continuing violations doctrine. The Court, however, also clarified that a discrete post-termination retaliatory act is independently actionable, even when it does not relate to present or future employment. Lastly, the Court held that evidence relating to time-barred retaliation claims can still be admissible in the trial of a timely claim.
