Wages & Overtime
Employment law requires your employer to pay you for your work. But sometimes, your boss will try to cut corners. The Employment Law Firm of Pennsylvania can help you get compensated for:
Discrimination at Work
Pennsylvania has "at will" employment laws. That means your employer can fire you for any reason, or no reason, at any time. But federal and state laws do protect you from employment decisions based on certain protected attributes, including:
- Race Discrimination
- Sex Discrimination
- Age Discrimination
- Disability Discrimination
- Sexual Orientation Discrimination
Family Medical Leave Act
Federal law lets some employees take unpaid time off because of a medical situation or to take care of a close family member. If your boss doesn't respect those laws, the Employment Law Firm of Pennsylvania can help.
Not every employment problem involves hiring or firing. Sometimes, a boss or coworker's behavior can make a workplace uncomfortable. When an employer refuses to address sexual harassment complaints, you may have a claim under state or federal law.
Sometimes, when a people stand up for themselves, or report an employer for breaking some other law, it could cause more trouble at work. If you are the victim of retaliation, the Employment Law Firm of Pennsylvania will defend your rights in court.
