When you go to work, you have rights. When you go to work, you are required to do your job without being harassed, embarrassed, teased, or discriminated against. The Wilkes-Barre employment attorneys at Vinsko & Associates, P.C. are here to ensure that employers meet their obligations in this regard.
Our Wilkes-Barre employment attorneys and trained staff will meet with you for a free initial consultation regarding your potential employment discrimination claim. Employers, under both Federal and Pennsylvania Law, are prohibited from discriminating against any individuals in the workplace. You are no longer alone if you have been a victim, or if you believe you have become a victim of discrimination.
Silence is not an option as it not only creates an unworkable environment for you, but also, it likely creates a hostile work environment for other employees as well. All of our discussions are confidential. We will give you the time and information you need to make an informed decision about pursuing your discrimination claim.
If you have been affected in your job because of your national origin, your gender, your age, your religion, your disability status, or sexual orientation, call our attorneys today. If you were treated unfairly because you were pregnant, call us today. If you have been a victim of sexual harassment, call us today. We want you to be knowledgeable about your rights as an employee
There are Time Limitations for Filing an Employment Discrimination Claim
One of the most important reasons not to wait to discuss and/or take action on your potential employment discrimination claim is due to the fact that Pennsylvania Law requires that notice be provided to the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission (PHRC) within one hundred eighty (180) days from the date of the alleged discrimination.
Additionally, in the federal context, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) requires a claim be filed within three hundred (300) days from the date of the alleged discrimination.
If you have been the victim of sexual harassment, or discrimination based on national origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion or your disability status, a Wilkes-Barre employment attorney can help.
Your Employer Cannot Treat You Adversely if You File A Claim of Discrimination or Harassment.
At Vinsko & Associates, P.C., all of our conversations with you are, and will remain, confidential. In the event we file a claim on your behalf with the EEOC or the PHRC against your employer, you do not have to worry about your employer, your manager, your supervisor or any other company official treating you adversely because you spoke up and filed a claim.
The law in Pennsylvania and in the United States expressly prohibits an employer from further discrimination as a result of you filing a claim for discrimination or harassment. If you have a question about employment law in Wilkes-Barre, call us up to let us help.
