The Law Office of Steven T. Auerbach offers employment litigation services for both Philadelphia-area businesses and employees.
As an employee, you take your job and livelihood seriously. In short, you strive to do your very best. When all is going well on the job front, you have a sense of security and you’re compensated, promoted and otherwise rewarded appropriately. But what do you do when something goes wrong? What happens when you’re terminated without cause, or experience some form of discrimination, sexual harassment, or presented with an overly restrictive non-compete agreement as a condition of employment? Matters of this nature can impact you negatively both professionally and personally and can turn from bad to worse in an instant.
If you’re a business owner or manager, on the other hand, what happens when you and your company are facing a discrimination or sexual harassment claim? Suddenly, your company is likely subject to exorbitant damages and attorney’s fees. As a manager, you can be held personally liable. There’s a great deal at stake in these matters, and the best defense is a strong one.
Whether you’re an employer or an employee, here are some situations worth considering:
Have you been terminated without cause? While no one is guaranteed a job indefinitely, an employer cannot fire you for an illegal reason or withhold a promotion based on your race, religion, gender, national origin, or other protected categories. If you feel you have been discriminated against, a Philadelphia employment lawyer can help you to understand your rights and fight for the compensation you deserve.
Sexual Harassment involves unwanted sexual advances or inappropriate or obscene comments and innuendo in the workplace. If you’ve experienced sexual harassment either directly or indirectly, or if your manager, supervisor, or co-worker has retaliated against you for notifying them of any such wrongdoing, an experienced attorney will help you with the next actions to take.
