North Philadelphia Employment Lawyers

Sidney L. Gold & Associates, P.C. has been focused entirely on employment law for more than 40 years. Our legal team strives to protect the rights of people in our community so they can go to work and make a living without the fear of harassment, discrimination, or retaliation. We are proud of our reputation in North Philadelphia for fighting discrimination in the workplace. Our track record includes successfully settling claims on behalf of workers regarding the following:

Federal and state laws exist to protect different classes of workers from suffering harassment, discrimination, and retaliation. Unfortunately, employers and coworkers continue to break the law. Our lawyers have extensive knowledge and experience in successfully defending clients who have been denied employment, promotions, or other benefits, or have otherwise been victims of discrimination due to any of the following reasons:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • National origin
  • Age
  • Disability
  • Sex, including gender identity, sexual orientation, or pregnancy/childbirth

If you feel you have been subjected to discrimination or harassment for any of these reasons, contact our dedicated North Philadelphia employment lawyers. We are committed to ensuring that all workers receive a fair chance at securing employment, promotions, and benefits, regardless of their age, sex, race, or disability.

LGBTQ Advocates

More than 60,000 residents of Philadelphia identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer/questioning (LGBTQ). Our lawyers actively work to protect these members of our community. While the state of Pennsylvania currently lacks comprehensive protections for LGBTQ workers, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 has been used to defend LGBTQ workers who have suffered discrimination or harassment based on their sexual identity. In the city of Philadelphia, it is illegal for employers, businesses, and housing providers to discriminate against anyone based on their gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

Pregnant Workers

For more than 40 years, the mission of Sidney L. Gold & Associates, P.C. has been to fight for employees’ rights. That includes advocating for women who have endured discrimination due to pregnancy, childbirth, and related conditions. Even though pregnant workers have rights under the law, many employers choose to ignore them. They may refuse to hire a pregnant worker, fire employees who become pregnant, refuse to give them time off for doctors’ appointments, or discipline them for missing work to receive prenatal medical care or counseling. Pregnancy discrimination takes many forms. No matter how it happens, it is illegal. Our lawyers have been at the forefront of employment law for more than 40 years.
