Appellate Division Affirms Summary Judgment on Whistle Blower Claims

The Appellate Division affirmed trial court Judge Powers’ decision granting summary judgment to defendant Borough of Woodcliff Lake, represented by Pfund McDonnell, PC, holding that the facts as pled did not establish a violation of the Conscientious Employee Protection Act codified at N.J.S.A. 34:19-1 et seq. as a matter of law. Plaintiff alleged violations of CEPA in connection with her employment as secretary for the Borough with Woodcliff Lake. She alleged that she reported employees “falsifying their time cards.” The Appellate Division affirmed the decision of Judge Powers who ruled that no adverse employment actions had been taken by the Borough.
