Protecting Employees’ Rights In The Lehigh Valley
Many employees feel powerless to protect their rights in the face of workplace discrimination, harassment or wrongful termination. At Worth, Magee & Fisher, we stand up for employees who have been wrongfully treated in the workplace, whether regarding fair compensation, equal opportunity, work-life balance or personal dignity. With offices in Allentown and Lehighton, our attorneys represent clients throughout the Lehigh Valley and have for nearly 60 years.
Employment is at will in Pennsylvania, meaning that employers do not need a specific reason to let employees go. However, at-will employment laws do not give employers the right to fire or harass employees because of their age, gender, national origin, race or disability, nor can an employer fire or harass employees in retaliation for complaining about discrimination. We aggressively represent clients who have been victims of:
- Sexual harassment
- Age discrimination
- Discrimination based on gender, race, pregnancy, religion or national origin
- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) violations
- Harassment leading to a hostile work environment
- Whistleblower retaliation
- Wrongful termination
- Wage and hour violations
- Unpaid overtime
- Employee misclassification
- Workplace safety violations
We protect clients under federal employment laws such as the ADA, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) laws, as well as all applicable commonwealth labor laws.
Our Lehigh County employment lawyers, led by Robert J. Magee, apply diligent, thorough representation focused on achieving optimum results. While many cases can be settled through assertive negotiation, we are fully prepared and have taken claims to the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and state and federal courts.
