Media Employment Discrimination Attorneys Protect Workers

Determined Pennsylvania lawyers advocate for victims of unfair treatment

Workers across Pennsylvania too often suffer from illegal prejudices that adversely affect hiring and firing decisions and employees’ treatment at work. If you have experienced employment discrimination, the accomplished employment lawyers of The Pagano Law Firm LLC can advise you on your rights and, if necessary, pursue legal recourse on your behalf.

Knowledgeable advisors handle all types of discrimination claims

We are well-versed in the federal and state laws that protect employees from discrimination in hiring, firing, promotions, pay, working conditions and other aspects of employment. These include discrimination based on:

  • Race, color and national origin
  • Religion
  • Sex (including pregnancy, childbirth and related medical conditions)
  • Age
  • Disability

Federal law also protects employees from discrimination based on citizenship and genetic information. Pennsylvania law affords further protections, prohibiting discrimination against people who have a GED instead of a high school diploma, who use a service animal or who are associated with a disability. The city of Philadelphia also prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

Not all employers are subject to the employment discrimination laws. The size of the company for which you work makes a difference. Most federal laws apply only to companies with 15 or more employees. Federal law prohibits age discrimination only in companies with 20 or more employees. However, state laws are more liberally applied. Pennsylvania’s anti-discrimination laws apply to companies with at least four employees.

Skilled advocates design and implement effective litigation strategies

If you fear you are the victim of employment discrimination, you should seek the advice of a knowledgeable employment law attorney who can advise you of steps you should take to protect your rights. Generally, the employee initially has the burden to show that his or her employer made a decision that discriminated against the employee. If the employee meets that burden, the employer has the burden to show that it had a legal reason for the decision. Then the burden shifts back to the employee to show that the employer’s reason was merely a pretext for illegal discrimination. At the Pagano Law Firm LLC, we gather the facts and develop the evidentiary strategy that is most likely to meet these burdens of proof.
