Marlton, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/22/2019 -- The Law Firm of Morgan Rooks, PC, is widely known as a home to the leading workplace sexual harassment lawyers in South Jersey, but the firm is committed to protecting the rights of all discrimination and harassment victims throughout the area. This includes victims of school bullying, a nationwide problem that the state of New Jersey is attempting to eradicate with some important recent updates to its anti-bullying law.

The Law Firm of Morgan Rooks, PC, encourages parents of school-aged children to know their rights under the law and contact an experienced attorney if they believe their child is a victim of illegal bullying.

School bullying was ruled a form of discrimination under New Jersey law in 2011 with the Anti-Bullying Bill Of Rights Act, which imposed strict regulations on school districts for how to train employees and handle incidences of bullying. In Feb. 2019, Mallory's Law, named for a New Jersey youngster who took her own life after being bullied, was introduced to the New Jersey Legislature.

Mallory's Law lays out tighter requirements for school districts and tougher consequences for bullies, including mandatory anti-bullying training after a third offense. One provision of the law even holds parents of a school bully liable in civil court for failing to properly supervise their child.

Bullying is an issue that New Jersey takes seriously, and The Law Firm of Morgan Rooks, PC wants to see the state's anti-bullying laws affect positive change in the lives of area families. In addition to their role as trusted attorneys dealing with cases of disability and harassment at work in South Jersey, the firm's lawyers serve as a legal resource throughout the area. Contact The Law Firm of Morgan Rooks, PC today to schedule a free consultation and discuss any bullying or harassment concerns.
