Seeking Justice & Compensation for Your Damages
You have the right to expect fair treatment at your workplace. Meshkov & Breslin can help you fight for justice if you are a victim of employment discrimination. Our Easton employment discrimination attorneys can take legal action in an effort to correct the unfair situation and win damages for you.
Understanding Employment Discrimination & Harassment
It is unlawful for an employer to make decisions concerning hiring, promotions, demotions, discipline, or discharge based on your:
- National origin
- Physical or mental disability
You are also protected by law against harassment based on any of these factors. Your employer is responsible for maintaining a non-discriminatory work environment and can be held accountable for harassing you directly or for allowing your coworkers to harass you.
How Our Firm Can Help
Our employment discrimination lawyers in Easton can examine the specific circumstances of your case and determine whether to file:
- A state claim through the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission
- A federal claim through the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
- Both a state and a federal claim
If your state or federal claim does not adequately address your problem, we can file a lawsuit in state or federal court against your employer. Our attorneys can guide you through the entire process and advocate strongly for your rights.
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
- Reporting illegal activity
- Reporting discrimination or harassment
- Reporting health and safety violations
- Taking leave within your rights
- Taking family and medical leave
- Military service
- Voting or serving on a jury
You may also have a case if you were terminated after filing for workers’ compensation benefits. Whatever the cause of your illegal termination, our wrongful discharge lawyers can help you fight to get your job back and seek compensation for your lost wages. We may also be able to pursue punitive damages against your employer, depending on the situation.
