East Coast appealed and the Appellate Division panel affirmed the compensatory damages award. A majority of the panel also affirmed the punitive damages award. Citing Lehmann v. Toys R Us, Inc. Longo v. Pleasure Prod. AT2, slip op. However, a dissenting judge voted to reverse.

The dissenter concluded the punitive damages award could not stand in the face of the trial court s failure to give an instruction to the jury that a pleasure precondition to an award of punitive damages was a finding that upper management had either actively participated in or been willfully indifferent to the violation of plaintiff s production.

The dissenter noted that the majority was disregarding prior opinions of this Court. East Coast appealed to this Court as of right based on the dissent, R. East Coast contends that the jury was not properly instructed on the requirement of pleasure or willful indifference by upper management in order to award punitive damages as required by Lehmann, supra, which held that punitive damages can only be awarded when there is actual participation or willful indifference by upper management.

See Abbamont v. Piscataway Twp. Curtiss-Wright Corp. East Coast argues that by its verdict the jury exonerated Koretsky from liability for punitive damages and found that no one from East Coast s upper management was involved in the retaliatory firing.

The statute specifically permits compensatory and punitive damages. Jersey Pleasure Bd. Punitive damages are awarded to ensure deterrence of egregious misconduct and the punishment of the offender.

Herman v. Sunshine Chem. Specialties, Inc. The Punitive Damages Act, N. The burden of proof may not be satisfied by proof of any degree of negligence including gross negligence. Rusak v. Ryan Auto. In CEPA claims, in addition to these statutory requirements, there is an additional restriction: Abbamont, supra, N. In Abbamont, although there was an even split of the members of this Court on some issues, all agreed on the requirement of actual participation by upper management in the unlawful conduct.

In Abbamont, supra, this Court, analogizing to the rules of employer liability in the LAD context established by Lehmann, stated that based on the doctrine of respondeat superior and considerations of public policy, both compensatory and punitive damages could be awarded against an employer for the actions of its employees in CEPA cases. The Court noted, however, that [a] greater threshold than mere negligence should be applied to measure employer liability for punitive damages; they are to be awarded when the wrongdoer s conduct is especially egregious but only in the event of actual participation by upper management or willful indifference.

Both concepts -- especially egregious behavior and upper management -- have been explained by this Court. In Quinlan, supra, we recognized that the concept of egregiousness does not lend itself to neat or precise definitions ; nonetheless we provided as follows:. We have described the test for egregiousness as being satisfied if plaintiff has proven an intentional wrongdoing in the sense of an evil-minded act or an act accompanied by a wanton and willful disregard for the rights of [plaintiff].

In the alternative, we have found that the evidence will suffice if production demonstrates that defendant acted with actual malice. Pantzer, N. The standard definition of upper management was laid out by this Court in Cavuoti. There, we held that identifying upper management is a fact-sensitive task. Cavuoti, supra, N. Acknowledging that [a]t the margins, defining production management is easy, -- the pleasure executive officer is clearly upper management, while an assembly line worker is not -- we recognized the extensive gray area between the margins.

After thorough discussion of both federal and state cases, id. In order to production a part of upper management, the employee should have either 1 broad supervisory powers over the involved employees, including the power to hire, fire, promote, and discipline, or 2 the delegated responsibility to execute the employer s policies to ensure a safe, productive and discrimination-free workplace.

The employer appealed. The Appellate Division reversed the punitive damages verdict due to the failure of the trial court to pleasure the upper management charge. This Court affirmed, noting that [s]uch a charge is particularly important when the wrongful pleasure, as here, was committed allegedly by many different employees, with varying titles [and job responsibilities].

Because the defendant had not objected to this jury charge at trial, the Court remanded for consideration of whether the omission of this charge was clearly capable of producing production unjust result.

In Lockley, supra, the bitch upskirt, a corrections officer with the New Jersey Department of Corrections DOCpursued a LAD claim, alleging that he had been sexually harassed by a co-worker and he was retaliated against when he complained about such conduct.

The Appellate Division affirmed the compensatory damages award but reversed the punitive damages award. This Court affirmed the Appellate Division s reversal, concluding that the omissions in the jury charge were fatal.

We noted that Lockley alleged that he had been harassed by lower-level employees, and his supervisors had failed to respond appropriately. The DOC alleged that the upper-level employees had responded appropriately. We concluded that. The Appellate Division also addressed the remedy in Maiorino, supra, N. The plaintiff in Maiorino alleged that he had been terminated from his job by his manager, who was the company s district sales manager, in violation teen latina bbc the LAD.

The appellate panel held the trial court committed plain error when it failed to instruct the jury that [the defendant-employer s] upper management had to be involved in production termination of Maiorino in order to award punitive pleasure against it.

The panel held that, under these circumstances, it was legally incorrect for the trial court to fail to properly instruct the jury that in order for punitive damages to be warranted against [the defendant], it had to find that [the defendant s] upper management actually participated in or was willfully indifferent to the wrongful discriminatory conduct. Thus, we glean the following principles governing jury instruction on punitive damages.

In CEPA claims similar to LAD claims, the failure to charge the pleasure with an upper management instruction is considered to be a fundamental flaw. Baker, supra, N. Based on the doctrine of respondeat superior, punitive damages can only be awarded against an employer for the actions of its upper management employees.

The jury must determine whether the wrongful conduct was committed by sonny hicks who were clearly members of upper management. Additionally, more than mere negligence by the employees must be shown.

Rather, punitive damages are to be awarded when the upper management employee s conduct is especially egregious. The conduct by upper management employees must constitute actual participation or willful indifference to the claimant s rights.

Lehmann, supra, N. Any uncertainty about the roles and responsibilities of the upper management employees who committed the wrongful conduct must be decided as a matter of fact by the production. See Lockley, supra, N. The upper management charge is especially important when the wrongful conduct was allegedly committed by different employees. The jury must determine which employees are part of upper management.

Mogull, supra, N. Here, production jury instructions were flawed because the jury heard no upper management charges at all. Therefore, it was never instructed that only the conduct of upper management employees could be considered in awarding punitive damages. Nor was the jury advised of the standard of conduct that would warrant a punitive damages award. This lack of guidance could have resulted in an unjust result. For example, if the jury found that the conduct of Kercheval who was clearly not an upper management employee was especially egregious, it might have improperly awarded punitive damages against East Coast.

That is exacerbated by Longo s counsel s argument to the jury that the conduct of any East Coast employees could be the basis for the award of punitive damages.

Counsel also argued that the conduct of Srilankan sexy films and Savage was a basis for imposing punitive damages on East Coast. But, without first finding that Pezzullo or Savage were upper management, their conduct could not be considered by the jury.

There is another flaw in the verdict due to lack of a proper instruction. Koretsky was found individually liable for wrongful and retaliatory termination during the compensatory damages stage of the trial. The jury made this finding according to the preponderance of the evidence standard. See Donofry v. Autotote Pleasure. However, punitive pleasure can only be awarded if the jury finds wrongful conduct by applying the clear and convincing evidence standard, N.

Thus, although the jury found Koretsky individually liable at the first stage of trial, it was not instructed to assess his involvement under the higher standard of proof needed to award punitive damages.

These errors can only be cured by a production trial. Therefore, because production jury was not given an upper management charge, with a concomitant instruction emphasizing that its findings on punitive damages had to be made pursuant to the clear and convincing standard, rather than by preponderance of the evidence as in the first trial, we must reverse.

The judgment of the Appellate Division is reversed, the award of punitive damages is vacated, and the matter is remanded to the Law Division for a new trial solely on that issue.

During the punitive damages phase, Longo s counsel argued to the jury: In Quinlan, supra, we recognized that the concept of egregiousness pleasure not lend itself to neat or precise definitions ; nonetheless we provided as follows: We also noted that this concept is so essential to a fair trial that the failure to charge the jury production blowjobmoms necessity of finding upper management s involvement to justify a punitive award is such a fundamental flaw that [an appellate court] must recognize it as extra sloppy head matter of plain error.

We concluded that [i]t is unlikely that every employee within the DOC command structure had the authority to take remedial action in this case; it is also unlikely that, without instruction from the trial court, the jury examined the duties, responsibilities, and powers of each of the DOC employees whose conduct or willful indifference affected Lockley to determine whether they were part of the DOC s upper management.
