  • New Jersey’s Law Against Discrimination (“LAD”) is silent as to the limitations period applicable to the filing of LAD claims. In 1993, in Montells v. Haynes, the NJ Supreme Court filled in that gap by establishing a two-year limitations period for the filing of such claims. On June 15, in Rodriguez v. Raymours Furniture Company, Inc., the Supreme Court addressed the issue whether an employee is bound by an agreement he/she signed, shortening that time period. The Court ruled that the employee is not.
