New Jersey and Pennsylvania Employment Law Attorneys
With Offices in Mercer County, NJ and Bucks County, PA
Any sort of mistreatment or harassment at work can be both financially and emotionally devastating. Whether you were treated unfairly at work, harassed in the workplace, discriminated against in the terms and conditions of your employment, not paid what you deserve, or fired for an illegitimate reason, you need to take action to protect your rights.
State and federal employment laws recognize that you deserve to be treated fairly in the workplace. However, these laws are complex and can be difficult to understand. Additionally, federal and state employment laws require potential plaintiffs to jump through a number of hoops in order to pursue a claim against their former employer. An experienced employment law attorney can help you identify and understand the specific statutory protections that apply in your case, as well as take action necessary to protect your rights.
