Discrimination and Whistleblower Law

October 6th, 2017

Philadelphia Whistleblower Lawyers: Discrimination and Whistleblower LawDiscrimination can happen anywhere, even at the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs. Recently, a commandant at the Gino J. Merli Veterans Center in Pennsylvania was fired allegedly because he was gay, in violation of the Pennsylvania Whistleblower Law. However, this case is not just about discrimination against sexual orientation; the plaintiff also alleges that the department fired him to cover up its own failure after the Veterans Center’s license was downgraded due to staffing issues.

The plaintiff had nearly two decades of administrative experience in the private sector when he was hired in 2010. He is seeking compensation for lost back wages, expected future earnings,  and damages for physical and emotional injuries, humiliation, and harm to his professional reputation. The lawsuit claims that the plaintiff continuously complained to his superiors that certain staffing requirements were critical to the health and well-being of resident veterans, but his requests were never implemented, and he was then made a scapegoat for the failures of the department. The lawsuit also makes unspecific claims that the plaintiff suffered negative treatment because of his sexual orientation.

If you have been the victim of discrimination or you have been wrongly terminated, please contact the Philadelphia whistleblower lawyers at Sidney L. Gold & Associates, P.C. at 215-569-1999, or contact us online for a free consultation. We will stand up to protect your workplace rights.
