If you have an issue with your employer, contact me for a free consultation to see if I can help. Pennsylvania is an employment “at will” state. That means that workers that don’t have contracts with their companies have very limited rights as far as reasons for being fired go. I get a lot of calls from people who got fired for no reason. Unfortunately, in most cases there isn’t anything I can do under PA law except ensure they are able to collect unemployment. Without an employment contract, you can be fired for any reason whatsoever, as long as it isn’t illegal under Federal or State discrimination law, such as for reasons such as race, sex, or other protected class. If a person is fired just because a supervisor didn’t like them, that is allowed under PA law. Often times though, I can negotiate with an employer for a better severance package, or sometimes for the person to get their job back.
Other common problems people have with their employers have to do with unemployment eligibility disputes, worker’s comp payments or return to work, or wage and hour issues. All of these areas have rights associated with them, and if you are unsure as to whether your rights are being violated or suspect you are being treated unfairly, you should consult an attorney to know where you stand and to see what can be done to help.
If you have a work related issue, such as wrongful termination, wage and hour violations, unemployment, severance, worker’s comp, discrimination or any other problem, contact me for a free consultation.
