Pennsylvania Employment Lawyers Advise on Workplace Issues

Accomplished Delaware County attorneys advise employees and businesses

Workplace problems make it impossible for employees and companies to operate efficiently. At The Pagano Law Firm, LLC in Media, we help New Jersey and Pennsylvania clients resolve employment law issues successfully and efficiently. Our accomplished attorneys advise both parties in cases relating to discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, noncompete agreements, employment contracts and other legal matters that affect workers and their bosses. We can outline your rights and advocate for a fair resolution to your employment concern.

Knowledgeable advisers assist with wage and termination matters

Employees are entitled to receive fair treatment and wages for the work they have done. Even if employees are no longer part of the business, they retain certain legal rights. We assist clients in cases relating to:

  • Wrongful termination — Pennsylvania and New Jersey are “at will” employment states, which means that nearly all workers can be released without any explanation from their employer. However, legal relief does exist for people who have been fired due to discrimination, unlawful retaliation and certain other instances where a dismissal violates a contract or public policy.
  • Unemployment — After a termination, companies are often hesitant to provide unemployment benefits. If you believe that you are unfairly being denied payments or that a false reason might be given for your dismissal, we can help to assert your rights against a former employer.
  • Unpaid overtime and benefits — Many people and businesses don’t understand the rules governing who is entitled to overtime and when extra pay must be given. We offer thorough advice to clients for compensation issues, including disputes over COBRA and Family Medical Leave Act benefits.
  • Noncompete agreements — We advise clients on a full range of issues relating to noncompete agreements, including their creation, negotiation and enforcement. If you are looking to protect your personal earning ability or your company’s valuable assets, our firm can show you how.

As soon as you identify a potential employment law problem, it is time to take action. Our experienced attorneys will help you obtain the information you need and explain your options.

Media attorneys handle all types of discrimination claims

Federal and state laws regarding prohibited discrimination can be confusing. Our firm provides personalized attention so that we can offer informed guidance on a full range of discrimination claims, including cases relating to:

  • Race, religion and ethnicity
  • Gender and pregnancy
  • Age
  • Disability

If you are being discriminated against, we provide a free initial consultation at our office in Media. During this conversation, we can outline your legal rights under state laws such as the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act and the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, as well as federal statutes such as the Americans with Disabilities Act. If legal action is in your best interest, we will represent you effectively before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and in court.

Dedicated advocates represent clients in sexual harassment cases

No one should be forced to endure sexual harassment on the job. We counsel employees and employers on how to stop this type of misconduct and obtain relief from wrongdoers. As a firm owned and operated by women, we know how to pinpoint cases where employees have been victimized by quid pro quo sexual harassment or a hostile work environment. Whether the situation involves alleged pressure by a supervisor for sexual attention or a workplace where offensive conduct is pervasive, we can guide you during administrative hearings and litigation to achieve the justice you deserve.
