Champion of Workers’ Rights
A lifelong champion of workers’ rights, employment law attorney Ty Hyderally was born in Sri Lanka and spent his early life in London before emigrating to the United States. After getting his Bachelor of Arts degree from Johns Hopkins University, Ty received his Juris Doctor degree from the University of California at Berkeley.
Ty began his career in the US Navy by working as a criminal trial lawyer in the Judge
Advocate General’s Office prior to returning to New Jersey to go into private practice. Ty worked at a number of prominent New Jersey law firms before opening his own practice, Hyderally & Associate, P.C. in Montclair, New Jersey.
Improving the Workplace Through Education
During his lengthy career, Ty has become known for protecting employees against discrimination and harassment. A former president of the National Employment Lawyer’s Association of New Jersey, Ty has worked diligently to improve workplace conditions through advocacy and education. To this end, he has audited company employment practices to verify that employee rights are protected. As a result, he litigates on behalf of those who are subject to the local New Jersey Law against Discrimination (LAD). In addition, he deals with employees and businesses to guarantee that New Jersey citizens fully comply with the New Jersey Family Leave Act (NJFLA).
Speaking on Behalf of the Community
Mr. Hyderally regularly speaks to employees and employers as a guest at legal events sponsored by the American Bar Association, the Institute for Continuing Legal Education, and the Association of Trial Lawyers of America-NJ among many others. His main objective is to make business owners, corporate management and their employees fully aware of the issues surrounding employment law, so that they are knowledgeable about the different rights and responsibilities each has in order to eliminate discriminatory or illegal methods.
Over the years, Ty Hyderally has remained active in his New Jersey community by participating in and supporting charity events such as the Tri-State Tough Mudder Race to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. His firm annually sponsors events such as the YMCA Montclair Run which supports programs that promote wellness and health within the community.
