KM&A is an employment law firm that represents employees across Pennsylvania. As discrimination lawyers, we fight for your rights under the law, whether you’ve experienced harassment or unpaid wages.
What Is Discrimination?
Discrimination occurs when your employer treats you differently because you are a member of a legally protected class. Protected categories include: age, disability, gender, LGBT, race, and religion. Employers are not allowed to base employment decisions such as hiring, firing, and promoting on any of 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). Discrimination attorneys use these laws to focus and settle your claim favorably.
KM&A Employment Law Practice Areas
Employment discrimination is rampant in Pennsylvania largely because there is insufficient training for employees to recognize discriminatory acts.
For example, employers often fail to offer reasonable accommodation to an employee with a disability simply because the employer or manager wasn’t trained in the specific conduct required by the law. Also, workplaces that are overwhelmingly homogeneous often exclude and discriminate against people of a different gender, age, race, or religion. Discrimination lawyers specialize in employment law, easily ascertaining the strength of a legal case and offering you options to proceed. Under Pennsylvania and federal law, illegal discrimination includes:
- Age Discrimination
- Disability Discrimination
- Gender Discrimination
- LGBT Orientation Discrimination
- Race Discrimination
- Religious Discrimination
- Reverse Discrimination
If you’ve been hired, fired, or promoted but you suspect that discrimination was in play, speak up. Employment discrimination is illegal. Discrimination lawyers are prepared to advocate for you, especially if your work rights have been violated by discrimination or wrongful termination.
