Over 6000 charges of discrimination were filed with the EEOC in Pennsylvania and New Jersey in 2017 alone. Despite improvement of general awareness through the media of insidious behavior by employers, employers still regularly discriminate against their employees on the basis of protected characteristics such as race, sex, religion, national origin, age, and disability. Leonard Sciolla’s Employment Law practice group is a strong, employee-focused team of attorneys working to protect individuals in a variety of employment related matters, including discrimination and civil rights. If you have been discriminated against or treated unfairly at work in contravention of state and federal laws, we will fight to obtain the maximum damages to which you are entitled.
A Background on Employment Law
Employment law refers to the set of rules that govern relationships between employers and employees.
It is illegal for an employer to fire, demote, harass, or otherwise discriminate against an employee based on any protected characteristic, including sex, age, race, or disability. It is also under an employer’s purview to act in accordance with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act, the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, and the Equal Pay Act.
