Have You Suffered Workplace Harassment Or Discrimination?
Bringing Allegations And Providing Evidence
In this day and age, most employers do not explicitly state that they are firing or refusing to promote someone for discriminatory reasons. Instead, employers may give a nondiscriminatory reason for treating similarly situated people differently. An employment lawyer’s job is to prove that the reason the employer gave is false.
As a workplace discrimination lawyer, I take the necessary steps to prove that discrimination has taken place by examining documentation and interviewing witnesses. I have more than 30 years of experience in employment law. I limit the number of clients I represent at one time so that I can devote a significant amount of time to each case.
In order to file a lawsuit alleging violations of federal law or state anti-discrimination law, you must file a charge of discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) within 300 days of the most recent act of discrimination, or with the Pennsylvania Human Rights Commission (PHRC) within 180 days. It is vitally important to file your EEOC claim or PHRC charge within the given time frame. Documentation is equally important. Provide as much documentation as possible, as I will use it as the basis of your case.
Fighting Back Against Workplace Harassment
You deserve to be free of harassment when you go to work. Harassment can be detrimental to your mental and physical health, causing anxiety, depression and other maladies. The law mandates that employers take steps to prevent harassment from occurring in the workplace. When they fail, I work to hold them accountable.
Speaking out against harassment in the workplace is an activity that is protected by law. If your employer retaliates against you for standing up for your rights, contact my office immediately. If you face harassment based on your gender, race, national origin or age, I will take action to defend your rights.
