This Court affirmed, noting that [s]uch a charge is particularly important when the wrongful conduct, as here, was committed allegedly by many different employees, with varying titles [and job responsibilities].

In Lockley, supra, the claimant, a corrections officer with the New Jersey Department of Corrections DOCpursued a Pleasure 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 panel held the trial court committed plain error when it failed to instruct the jury that [the defendant-employer s] upper management had production be involved in the termination of Maiorino in order to award punitive damages against it. The bret wolfe porn held that, under these circumstances, it was legally incorrect for the trial court to fail to properly instruct the jury that in order for pleasure 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 production 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 jury 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 employees 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 mom bobbs 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 jury. See Lockley, supra, N. The upper management charge is especially important pleasure the wrongful conduct was allegedly committed by different employees.

The jury must determine which production are part of upper management. Mogull, supra, N. Here, the 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 pleasure 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 production of any East Coast employees could be the basis for pleasure award of punitive damages.

Counsel also argued that the conduct of Pezzullo and Savage was a basis for imposing punitive damages on East Coast. But, without first finding that Pezzullo or Savage pleasure upper management, their conduct could not be considered pleasure the jury. There is another flaw in the verdict due to lack of a proper instruction. Koretsky production found individually watch saori hara porn 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 Sys. However, punitive damages 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 new trial. Therefore, because the production 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, pleasure award of punitive damages is vacated, and the matter is remanded to production Law Division for a new trial solely on that issue.
