Employment Law

employment law

Most people in the Pennsylvania labor force are considered "at-will" employees, meaning that either party can break the employment relationship with nothing owed to the other (i.e. no right to sue). This rule changes for employees who had a contract for a definite term such as with a union collective bargaining agreement.

As a form of protection to workers who are terminated, Pennsylvania (like most states) provides a scheme of unemployment compensation benefits to people who have lost a job through no fault of their own. There are some circumstances where an employee can indeed sue the employer for being terminated or harassed (e.g., discrimination, violations of public policy, hostility or harassment, failure to pay benefits). If you have suffered an adverse employment act, contact our attorneys today to see what your rights are. You must act promptly in employment matters or you could lose your rights.
