Philadelphia Employment Discrimination Lawyers

Marital Discrimination

Whether an employee is single, married, divorced, separated, or widowed should have no effect on an employer’s decision to hire, promote, terminate, or compensate the employee.  Marital discrimination can take many forms.  If an employer refuses to hire a competent applicant because they are pregnant and unmarried, that is both pregnancy and marital discrimination.  This type of discrimination can also occur if an employer refuses to hire a widowed applicant because he assumes she will need benefits, which is also a case of marital discrimination.

Philadelphia employment discrimination lawyers at Sidney L. Gold & Associates represent clients who have been victims of marital discrimination.  We advise clients on their best legal strategy, which can range from negotiation without an attorney, representation by a lawyer, or filing an official lawsuit.  The goal of our lawyers is to get justice for the employee who has been discriminated against in the workplace because of their marital status.
