Gold Law Firm Representing Plaintiff in Wrongful Termination Suit

November 15th, 2018

Attorneys Sidney L. Gold, Traci M. Greenberg, and Leanne L. Coyle from Sidney L. Gold & Associates, P.C. are representing the plaintiff in a wrongful termination lawsuit against a church where she was formerly employed from November 2010 to November 2017. The suit resulted after the teacher attempted to apply for Workers’ Compensation after injuring her arm and shoulder and enduring severe emotional distress during a dispute with a disgruntled parent who assaulted her. The Grace-Trinity United Church of Christ in Philadelphia denied the Workers’ Compensation claim and subsequently terminated her position with the school alleging that she failed to perform her duties. The claim was filed on October 9 in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas, and the plaintiff is seeking compensatory and punitive damages.

Although a worker may lose a job for various legitimate reasons, an employer cannot legally terminate an employee as a form of retaliation. If workers voice their concerns about the workplace environment to the employer, the employer may punish employees by giving them poor reviews, reduced hours or pay, or dismissing them from their positions altogether, which are all examples of retaliation. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects workers from the act of workplace retaliation.

Gold & Associates, P.C. at 215-569-1999 or contact us online to schedule a free consultation. We serve clients in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York from our offices in Philadelphia.
