Employment Discrimination & Harassment

It is unlawful for an employer to make decisions concerning hiring, promotions, demotions, discipline or discharge based on your:

  • Race
  • National Origin
  • Religion
  • Gender
  • Physical or mental disability
  • Pregnancy
  • Age
  • Other characteristics

You are also protected by law against harassment based on any of these factors. Your employer is responsible for maintaining a nondiscriminatory work environment, and can be held accountable for harassing you directly or for allowing your coworkers to harass you. Our employment law attorneys examine the specific circumstances of your case and determine whether to file:

If a state or federal claim does not adequately address your problem, we file a lawsuit in state or federal court against your employer. Our Easton, Pennsylvania employment law attorneys will guide you through the entire process and advocate strongly for your rights.

Wrongful Discharge Or Termination

Pennsylvania is an “at-will” employment state, meaning that a Pennsylvania employer may generally fire an employee for any lawful reason, such as poor job performance. However, you may have a claim of wrongful discharge if you have been terminated for an unlawful reason. These include retaliation for:

  • Your complaint about conditions at work
  • Illegal activity
  • Discrimination or harassment
  • Health and safety violations
  • Taking leave within your rights
  • Family and medical leave
  • Military service
  • Voting or serving on a jury
  • Filing for Workers’ Compensation benefits
  • Other reasons

Whatever the cause of your illegal termination, our wrongful discharge lawyers help you get your job back or seek compensation for your lost wages. We may also pursue punitive damages against your employer.
