Philadelphia Discrimination Lawyer

Background Checks, Credit History, & Criminal Records

Philadelphia employment discrimination law firm of Sidney L. Gold & Associates represents clients that have been denied employment based on information obtained through a background check, credit history, or criminal record check made by a potential employer during pre-employment screening.   As these background and financial screenings have become more commonplace in the hiring process, applicants are often denied employment based on discriminating factors involving race and ethnicity.  The Civil Rights Act provides protection against employment decisions based on inconsistent screening tools.

Our discrimination lawyers in Philadelphia work with clients who have been denied employment to determine if the credit or background check played a role in the employment decision-making process, and whether the factors considered in their decision involved racial or ethnic discrimination.  Federal, state, and local laws provide the protection needed to determine if a lawsuit against the employer is justified.
