The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination outlaws an employer's retaliation against any employee who seeks protection under it, such as by filing a lawsuit for discrimination/harassment, reporting harassment, or cooperating in an investigation of harassment.  The anti-retaliation protections of the LAD also apply to retaliation that happens after an employee is fired -- such as by canceling health benefits too soon.  Defense lawyers have argued that so-called "post-employment retaliation" is not covered by the LAD because it is not a "term or condition of employment."  But the Supreme Court of New Jersey recently ruled that the LAD outlaws such post-termination reprisal.  See Roa v. Roa, 200 N.J. 555 (2010).
