Three Reasons To Hire An Employment Lawyer

1. Move the case forward

The agency process with the EEOC or PHRC is painfully slow. Sometimes, years go by without any action. An experienced employment lawyer can push your case forward through the bureaucracy and red tape.

2. Meet deadlines and avoid pitfalls

Strict deadlines apply with legal proceedings in front of the EEOC and state or federal courts. Saying the wrong thing or forgetting to say the right thing can totally destroy your case. Employment lawyers guide you through the process with proven legal strategy.

3. Get the employer’s attention

Most employers will not take your case seriously unless you have legal counsel. Even if you have evidence and witnesses, the employer knows they can beat you in court on technicalities and complex legal arguments. Once you have professional representation from an employment attorney, your employer has to take your case more seriously. We have seen countless cases where the employer offered an unrepresented client just a few thousand dollars as a “last offer,” only to be forced into paying real money in a settlement we negotiated.

Employment Law Practice Areas

Employment Discrimination

Without employee training for recognizing discriminatory actions, employment discrimination runs rampant in Pennsylvania.

Employment discrimination takes all forms. For example, employers choose not to accommodate an employee with a disability because it’s easier to fire and replace that employee. Employment attorneys recognize the strength of a legal case and offer you options to proceed. Under Pennsylvania and federal law, illegal employment discrimination includes:

Employment decisions such as hiring, firing, or promoting should never be based on age, disability, gender, orientation, race, or religion. If you think your rights have been violated, whether you’ve suffered discrimination or wrongful termination, you have a short time for filing a claim.

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (Title VII), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act (PHRA) are a few laws that specifically protect the rights of employees.

Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

Whether a medical condition arose on the job or not, the law protects many employees who have difficulty performing their jobs due to such conditions. You may be entitled to benefits through an insurance program or you may be entitled to federally-protected medical leave. An employment lawyer assists with short-term disability and long-term disability issues, workers’ compensation, reasonable accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) claims.

Harassment

Federal, state, and local law prohibits sexual harassment and harassment because of race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, creed, physical or mental disability, marital status, age, orientation, or any other basis protected by federal, state, or local law. All such employment harassment is unlawful, should not be tolerated, and you should consult with an employment lawyer immediately.

Unemployment Benefits

If you recently lost your job, unemployment benefits are a vital resource for you and your family. A lot of money is at stake, so you should make sure you do everything possible to win your case. You are not required to have an employment attorney represent you at a referee hearing, but it is strongly recommended. An experienced attorney knows how to zero in on the most relevant and helpful evidence in your case. A good attorney will also be able to make critical legal objections and arguments. The law in this area is full of pitfalls, any of which can prevent you from receiving your benefits.

Unpaid Wages

Federal and state law requires employers to pay minimum wage and overtime to most workers. If you have been denied your fair wages, you may have an unpaid wages claim against your employer under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) or the Pennsylvania Wage Payment and Collection Law (WPCL). Employment lawyers fight for your rightful payment under the law.

USERRA (Military Employment) Lawyer

Under USERRA, it is unlawful for an employer to retaliate against any employee for military service. That includes the employee participating in active duty, active duty training, inactive duty training, initial active duty training, required fitness examinations, and/or funeral honors duty. Retaliation against an employee for military employment discrimination  because of a history of military service is also illegal. An employment lawyer can help an employee sue their employer for discrimination in the three most common forms of military discrimination: failure to reemploy, unlawful termination, and failure to promote.
