Philadelphia Discrimination Lawyers

Holding Employers Accountable for Unlawful Mistreatment

At Weisberg Law, our experienced employment law attorneys understand the impact that discrimination still has in the workplace. Despite federal and state protections, many protected classes still suffer from discriminatory practices that can result in being overlooked on a job application or for promotion, or targeted for harassment and termination.

As a law firm that seeks justice for individuals, businesses, and employees. We take pride in our ability to hold employers accountable for discriminatory practices. When people come to us because something happened to them at work, we offer them a free initial consultation to learn about their situation. During this meeting, we’ll advise them of how we may be able to help. We’ve been able to seek fair and just compensation for employees who experienced discrimination at work of many kinds.

Contact Weisberg Law online or call (610) 550-8042 if you experienced unlawful mistreatment at work. Our discrimination attorneys in Philadelphia can help you hold an employer accountable for violating your rights.

You Are Protected from Discrimination

Most employees are hired on an at-will basis, meaning they can be terminated for any reason. Under federal and state protections, however, it is a violation of employment law to terminate employees or take adverse employment action on the basis of qualities that could identify someone with a protected class.

Federally protected class qualities can include:

  • Race
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Disability
  • National origin
  • Pregnancy
  • Religion

While sexual orientation is not a protected class under federal or Pennsylvania state law, a significant number of municipalities in Pennsylvania make sexual orientation a protected class, including Philadelphia. Philadelphia also prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender identity.

Legal Options Available

If you have been discriminated against in the workplace, you have legal options that can help you recover financially for the loss of income that resulted from the discrimination. If you were wrongfully terminated, for example, you may be able to receive back pay for the time you missed and become reinstated to your position.

You should discuss the options available to you through negotiation, litigation, and trial with your discrimination lawyer in Philadelphia.
