Contact the Mechanicsburg PA discrimination attorneys.

We handle a broad range of employment matters and are skilled in resolving disputes both in and out of court. Our practice areas include:

  • Wrongful termination claims — We represent both employers and employees in wrongful termination claims. Because Pennsylvania is an employment-at-will state, employers have broad legal protections regarding terminating employees with or without "cause." However, employers are barred from firing employees due to discrimination, because employees filed an employment law lawsuit or because employees refused to engage in quid pro quo sexual harassment. If you face a wrongful termination lawsuit, either as an employer or as an employee, we can provide immediate legal counsel regarding your rights, and can represent you in negotiations and litigation.
  • Unemployment compensation claims — While we represent both employers and employees in unemployment compensation claims, most claims of this type are filed by employees. Has your employer contested your right to receive unemployment benefits, or has the Office of Employment Security denied your claim? We can provide experienced, hands-on legal help.
  • Employment discrimination claims — In Pennsylvania, discrimination based on disability, gender, creed, color, national origin and sexual preference is illegal. The Americans with Disabilities Act has been amended, expanding your rights. The law continues to evolve, and we can answer your questions about your case. If your employer has terminated you, refused to promote you or created or tolerated a hostile work environment, we can provide effective legal help. Sexual harassment still exists in the workplace and we are here to stop it.
