Our employment lawyers represent Complainants in the PHRC all the time. Our firm represents workers when their companies discriminate against them, harass them, and cheat them out of money they deserve.

Overview of the PHRC Process:

  • You experience some form of discrimination (wrongful termination, failure to hire, harassment, failure to promote)
  • You file your Complaint with the PHRC
  • The investigative and legal staff of the PHRC review the situation and issue a determination
  • If the PHRC investigator issues a Finding of Probable Cause, a Conciliation Meeting will be scheduled within about a month
  • The letter will say, “Probable cause exists to credit the Complainant’s allegations” of discrimination

What actually happens at the PHRC Conciliation?

  • The Respondent/Employer may try to settle the case cheaply
  • They typically offer a very low settlement amount and claim they won’t pay any more
  • If you go to the Conciliation without legal counsel, the Respondent/Employer may not take your case seriously
  • Once you agree to a settlement, you cannot go back and ask for more money, even if you deserve a lot more

Before you sign away your legal rights, contact a lawyer to discuss your options.
