Can They Do That? - Wrongful Discharge in Pennsylvania
Can They Do That? - Wrongful Discharge in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania is an “at-will” state. That means that as a general rule, employers are free to hire and free to fire employees. There are, however, limits to an employer’s powers. For example, an employer may not:

·         fire you or discriminate against you for filing a worker’s compensation claim,

·         fire you or discriminate against you because of your race, age, or gender,

·         fire you or harass you because you will not have sex with your employer, or

·         fire you or discriminate against you for serving on jury.

If you think you have been wrongfully discharged from your place of work, call Ross & Ross at (814) 274 – 8612. Let our experienced attorneys fight for the rights you have earned. We can help you make a claim to the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission and the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. If your claim is not resolved at that level, we can help you file a suit in federal court. The anti-discrimination statutes even provide a requirement that the employer pays your attorney’s fees.
