Erie Employment Attorney
An Erie employment attorney advocates on the behalf of employees who have experienced negative employment actions. Since the law covers the rights of those who are seeking, working, or retiring from a job, many circumstances fall under employment law. In addition, we believe in employment equality.
We represent the employees and workers of the “Gem City” and the surrounding area of Erie for many different situations, including executive and professional exit strategies, sexual harassment, military discrimination, unemployment benefits, unpaid salary or wages, FMLA, unpaid overtime, retaliation, employment discrimination (age, disability, gender, LGBT, race, religious, reverse), severance agreements, and union issues.
Call 814-806-1200 for a free consultation because we want to support your lawful rights, whether providing advice or representing your case.
What Can An Erie Employment Attorney Do For Me?
An Erie employment attorney acts as your sounding board for illegal employment action because a lawyer knows the law and your options under it. Moreover, your lawyer answers questions and suggests the best plan of action for your situation. In conclusion, an employment attorney outline the legal process for you and guides you through it.
1. Have you dealt with employment discrimination?
Nothing strips you of your self-esteem quite like discrimination in the workplace because most, if not all, employment is based on qualifications and experience. Furthermore, employment discrimination is illegal. And yet, figuring out next steps for pursuing your rights under the law can be overwhelming and frustrating. Therefore, contact an Erie employment lawyer because he or she can guide you through the legal process.
2. What do I do if my employer has violated FMLA?
First of all, check to be sure that you and your employer qualify for FMLA coverage. When you are FMLA eligible due to time worked and covered reason, your employer is obligated by law to provide FMLA leave to you. Since cases involving FMLA can be complicated, reach out to an Erie employment attorney so he or she can guide your case to a favorable conclusion.
3. What if my employer retaliates against me?
Retaliation is illegal. While some employers might try negative employment action in response to a filed complaint, most know that retaliation can cause more problems and so refrain. In addition, any action of retaliation can be added to the original complaint. If you suspect that you’ve experienced retaliation, notify your lawyer.
4. What about non-payment of wages?
Employment law obligates employers to pay employees their rightful wages. Additionally, if you’re not receiving wages, you may have an unpaid wages case on your hands. But, if you suspect that you will need to take legal action, contact an Erie employment attorney because he or she will know what your situation requires.
