My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: new jersey. As a non-tenured first year teacher, I was not rehired because I was terminated for performance. I just had my first performance review which went OK (I was told it was good for a beginning teacher) then a letter was issued to terminate me (I found the date and detail of letter on my last day when reviewing my personnel file) and right after the letter was sent, I had an unannounced observation and they were overly critical. My next two performance reviews were critical. I know I was well liked and doing a good job so I think my termination (along with several others) was for convenience and masked as performance (ther reviews were written to justify their action). I'm persuing it legally but do I have any legal grounds as a non-tenured teacher?
