Employee Rights

Pittsburgh Employee Rights Lawyers

Discrimination can be both degrading and embarrassing. When it occurs in the workplace, there are specific remedies under Pennsylvania and federal law. At Logan & Logan, our employee rights attorneys have significant experience representing individuals who have suffered job displacement or other injustice due to age discrimination, or discrimination based on gender, sex, race, disability, national origin, or religion, or harassment.

You have many employee rights under the civil rights laws passed in this country. If you feel your rights have been violated, we encourage you to call our employment law attorneys. We offer a free telephone consultation to discuss your possible rights and work with you to determine how best to handle the situation. If we conclude after meeting with you that your employee rights have been violated, we will work with you to set up a plan of action appropriate to the unique circumstances of your case.

Many people are hesitant to complain about discrimination in the workplace because they are afraid their employer will fire or demote them. However, if your employer takes any adverse action against you as a result of your filing a discrimination complaint, our lawyers can help you file a retaliation claim against your employer.

You should never allow a discrimination problem at work to linger. The deadline for filing a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (EEOC) is 300 days from the date the discrimination took place. The deadline for filing a claim with the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission (PHRC) is 180 days. It's best to contact our lawyers as soon as possible so we can investigate the case while the facts are still fresh, and before a deadline goes by.

If you have questions or concerns regarding your employee rights, contact our lawyers today for your free initial telephone consultation. We are in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, serving the Pittsburgh metropolitan area and Western Pennsylvania.
