Problems at work can impact not only your ability to earn a living, but also your mental and physical health, your reputation, and your family’s financial security.
You might have heard that Pennsylvania and New Jersey are “at-will work states,” where an employer doesn’t have to give a reason for firing you. That’s not the whole story. There are state and federal laws that protect employees from wrongful termination or employer abuse in many different situations.
Some examples of people who should consult with an Employment Lawyer:
A mother who is fired after requesting time off under the Family and Medical Leave Act by a boss who tells her that she can’t have any time off to take care of her sick child.
An accountant who is terminated for reporting a hospital CEO who is committing Medicare fraud.
An African American man who is repeatedly written up by his boss for infractions that Caucasian employees in his department are not.
A Latina employee whose boss repeatedly makes sexual advances towards her, telling her that he will have her deported if she doesn’t comply.
A cashier with a herniated disc who has to quit his job because of severe back pain when his employer ignores a doctor’s note and refuses to let the cashier sit while working.
