Employment Discrimination

Northwest Pennsylvania Employment Lawyers: Race Discrimination, Gender Discrimination

Firing employees as part of a business reorganization plan is not illegal per se. Discriminating against employees on the basis of age (over 40), race, color, national origin or religion is prohibited by law. Retaliatory discharge in response to informal or formal complaints of sexual harassment is likewise illegal — and our attorneys are prepared to take employers to court if necessary when our clients have experienced discrimination on the job.
