Employment Discrimination

Discrimination in the workplace is illegal and can take many forms such as in hiring, promotions, termination and numerous other aspects of employment relationship.  Protections are provided under certain laws when the discrimination is on the basis of a person’s race, gender, national origin, religion, disability, or age, or there is retaliation against an individual for opposing such practices. Federal and state agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission (PHRC) are charged with investigating such claims.

Proving discrimination and wrongful termination can be a difficult task.  The attorney you hire should be familiar with the law, statutes of limitation, the rules of procedure, the interaction of various laws and the physical and emotional effects of litigation on their clients.

Discrimination is illegal and it can happen at any stage of employment.  Hiring policies, wage distribution, and wrongful termination are often times the cause.  Some of the categories protected by the law include race, age, gender, national origin, disability, and religion.
