New Jersey's Conscientious Employee Protection Act ("CEPA") protects "whistleblowers" from workplace retaliation. Because CEPA favors employees, and applies to all New Jersey employers regardless of size, all organizations with New Jersey employees should be familiar with it.

Who is a Whistleblower under CEPA?
Whistleblowers are commonly thought of as employees who publicly expose fraud or wrongdoing. However, CEPA also protects employees who raise objections within their organization, or refuse to participate in activities that they reasonably believe are illegal, fraudulent, criminal, or against public policy. In order to be protected under CEPA, employees need not show that the employer actually violated any law or policy-a good faith belief that wrongdoing has occurred is sufficient.

Employees who complain about or object to misconduct of co-workers are protected by CEPA-even if the wrongdoing is not in furtherance of the business. There is no exception for employees who are required as part of their jobs to monitor or report misconduct.

When I am at a networking event I always ask myself, "What is the purpose of going and who do I hope to meet?"  Keep in mind that networking is about being genuine and authentic, building trust and relationships, and seeing how you can help others.

Imagine being able to assist local charities by doing something as simple as offering your employees access to beverages in your facility.
