Employment lawyers identify unlawful discrimination when employer or manager treats you differently because you are in a protected class. Under Pennsylvania and federal law, illegal discrimination includes:
- Disability discrimination
- Sex discrimination or gender discrimination
- Race discrimination
- Age discrimination
- Pregnancy discrimination
- Religion discrimination
Employers are not allowed to base employment decisions like hiring, firing, and promoting on the above characteristics. If you have suffered discrimination at work or have suffered wrongful termination, you have a limited time to file your claim. Discrimination claims arise under the 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).
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.
Whether a medical condition arose on the job or not, the law protects many employees who have difficulty performing their jobs. You may be entitled to benefits through an insurance program or you may be entitled to federally-protected medical leave. We assist 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.
Under USERRA, it is unlawful for an employer to take military employment discrimination against any employee for participating in active duty, active duty for training, inactive duty training, initial active duty training, required fitness examinations, and/or funeral honors duty. An employment lawyer can help an employee sue their employer for discrimination in the three most common forms, failure to reemploy, unlawful termination, and failure to promote.
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 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 to 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. Learn more about unemployment benefits claims.
Wage and Overtime
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 a claim against your employer under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) or the Pennsylvania Wage Payment and Collection Law (WPCL).
