International Employment Lawyers in Philadelphia

Extraterritorial and Local Law Claims

Expatriate executives and employees are advised by Sidney L. Gold & Associates of their rights under the laws of the United States and of the country to which they work.  Employment agreements include provisions that protect expatriates while working in another country.  The language of these provisions is vital to the protection and enforcement of these laws.

Expatriates should seek counsel from lawyers in the host country when dealing with issues relating to local laws.  Our employment lawyers in Philadelphia have a network of colleagues around the world that can quickly and efficiently provide counsel and representation to employees working outside of the United States.  This also applies to non-native employees working in the United States.

If the employee encounters a legal situation that has extraterritorial rights, Sidney L. Gold & Associates can provide counsel and representation.   Extraterritorial rights grant a U.S. court privilege to govern laws protecting U.S. citizens working outside the territorial limits of the United States.   U.S. statues that have extraterritorial rights include Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments (ADAA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), and the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA).  Our lawyers are also very experienced with the treaties and exceptions that exist between the United States and other countries that can affect discrimination claims.

For more information on extraterritorial and local law claims, contact the Philadelphia employment law firm of Sidney L. Gold & Associates at 215-569-1999, or submit our online contact form.
