The dedicated Scranton employment lawyers at Sidney L. Gold & Associates, P.C. have made it their mission to safeguard the rights of workers throughout Pennsylvania. Our attorneys have stood up for employees who suffered discrimination, sexual harassment, and retaliation. Our experience includes handling all types of employment claims that include:

We understand the complexities of employment issues and we work vigorously to obtain justice for our clients.

Age Discrimination

Age discrimination is widespread and underreported. In fact, more than 60 percent of workers 45 years and older say they have experienced age discrimination. When a company has a layoff, older employees and managers are often the first to go. Age discrimination also happens when employers pay younger employees more money for their skills and experience. Employers are often very good at hiding their discriminatory practices. At Sidney L. Gold & Associates, P.C., we know age discrimination when we see it. We have recovered damages on behalf of older employees who suffered discrimination or harassment in the workplace.

Disability Discrimination Claims

The Americans with Disabilities Act bars employers from discriminating against qualified individuals with disabilities. This includes hiring, firing, advancement, and other conditions of employment. Under the law, employers must make a reasonable accommodation for a person’s disability if the accommodations would not impose an undue hardship on the employer’s business. Despite our laws, discrimination against disabled employees is still rampant. Our Scranton employment lawyers advocate for employees who believe their rights have been violated. We will gladly explain to all potential clients the options available for proceeding with a disability discrimination lawsuit.

Whistleblowers Need Legal Guidance from Experienced Lawyers

Employees face a tough choice if they discover their employer is doing something illegal or dishonest. If they tell their supervisors, they risk retaliation by termination, demotion, or harassment. However, employees who do not speak up face internal conflict, particularly if they are putting the public’s safety at risk. Although there are federal, state, and industry-specific laws to protect workers who choose to blow the whistle, cases are difficult to win. Our firm has successfully fought for the rights of whistleblowers who were wrongfully terminated.

Scranton Sexual Harassment Lawyers Stand Up for Victims

Sexual harassment in the workplace is illegal. Yet, sexual harassment continues to be a serious problem. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission had a 12 percent increase in sexual harassment claims in 2018. Most of these claims did not result in a settlement. Bringing a successful sexual harassment lawsuit requires legal representation by a team of skilled lawyers.
