Employment Discrimination

Under the law, discriminating against a worker of a protected class is illegal. Employers cannot discriminate against you or harass you on the basis of age, race, sex and gender, religion, national origin, or disability, either on the job or in a job interview. We also help people who are wrongfully terminated, or suffer defamation or invasion of privacy. Employers also cannot retaliate, using discipline or termination for example, against a person for speaking up about illegal discrimination.

Employment Agreements

There are many types of employment contracts for individual employees, executives, and professionals, including: compensation agreements, benefit agreements, separation and severance agreements, covenants not to compete, non-solicitation agreements, and confidentiality obligations. We highly recommend reviewing a contract with an employment attorney BEFORE you sign it, but we work with people at any stage who have questions about their employment agreement documents.

Wage and Hour and ERISA

Wage and hour issues can be confusing to both employers and employees. Are you exempt or non-exempt? Are you entitled to overtime? Accrued vacation? Are your receiving the right benefits? Our employment attorneys can help to make sure that everything is in compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act, The Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Law, the Pennsylvania Wage Payment and Collection Law and ERISA.
