CEPA is an acronym for the Conscientious Employee Protection Act. CEPA is commonly referred to as the New Jersey whistleblower statute. Its provisions begin at N.J.S. 34:19-1.

CEPA, gives New Jersey employment lawyers powerful legal tools. These tools protect New Jersey whistleblowers who “report” illegal practices of employers. This “whistleblowing” can be to an employee's supervisor, or to a government official. The government official can be an official of the federal government, State government, or local government. It can be to a judge, to a regulatory agency, or to a law enforcement agency.

The protection that CEPA provides to New Jersey whistleblowers is considerable. New Jersey CEPA protections for New Jersey employeesCEPA forbids New Jersey employers to retailiate against whistleblowers when the whistleblowing was of a kind that CEPA protects. “Retaliate” includes firing, suspending, or demoting an employee. When a New Jersey employer violates CEPA and retaliates against the whistleblowing employee anyway, CEPA provides powerful remedies to the whistleblower. Among the remedies that CEPA makes available to successful New Jersey whistleblowers are reinstatement to their former positions of employment with full back pay, plus attorney's fees and costs of suit.
